Trent, Yellowknives Dene First Nation partner to launch Indigenous Environmental Studies & Sciences diploma


Trent University has partnered with the Yellowknives Dene First Nation to launch an Indigenous Environmental Studies & Sciences diploma that is tailored for Dene students in the Northwest Territories. The curriculum blends Western sciences with Dene Indigenous Knowledge, and students will learn about foundations in Indigenous learning and the environment and explore language, ethics, and the environment. The program includes experiential learning opportunities that are grounded in YKDFN culture. Credits earned while completing the diploma will be transferrable to a BA or BSc program at Trent.
