Memorial’s Labrador campus to offer first undergraduate degree program this Fall

Memorial University’s Labrador campus will offer its first undergraduate degree program this Fall. Students in the Bachelor of Arctic and Subarctic Interdisciplinary Studies program will study in an interdisciplinary environment in the North while developing their capacities in northern leadership. Instead of offering semester-based courses, the program will offer two six-week interdisciplinary modules per semester, facilitating an accelerated and hands-on learning experience. “Within Memorial, this program will be an example of how post-secondary education can bring together Indigenous and place-based knowledges and land-based learning, with academic rigour and cutting-edge learning theories,” said Memorial Associate Professor Dr Sylvia Moore.
