The Department of Indigenous Studies (formerly the Aboriginal Governance Program) is grounded in the intellectual and cultural heritage of Indigenous peoples in Canada and around the globe. We welcome students from all backgrounds and disciplines to explore the unique complexities and broad, diverse cultures associated with Indigenous studies which include natural resources, economic development and Indigenous knowledge. The Department of Indigenous Studies is proud to offer its students the opportunity to pursue a Master of Arts in Indigenous Governance degree, which was established in 2008.

Join us as we examine Indigenous governance through Indigenous wisdom and multidisciplinary coursework in Indigenous/Aboriginal governance and disciplines like politics, anthropology, human ecology, sociology, law, history, religious studies, and conflict resolution studies. We recognize and honor the central role of language as carrier of culture, conveyor of tradition and knowledge, and signifier of individual and community identity by supporting the teaching of the Indigenous languages Ojibwe and Cree.

Graduate students will earn a Master of Arts in Indigenous Governance, preparing them for leadership and management positions within Indigenous governmental and non-governmental organizations, and in urban and other community-based organizations; or to further their educations in a variety of Ph.D. programs.

About the Program

The two-year program Master of Arts (MA) in Indigenous Governance offers students an innovative and unique indigenous-centered, graduate level education.

The MA in Indigenous Governance is a multidisciplinary program grounded in an understanding of Indigenous peoples' values, principles, and philosophies. The approach we foster is one that combines a supportive environment for students of all backgrounds, while modeling and fostering the highest standards of excellence inside and outside of the classroom. We recognize and honor the central role of language as carrier of culture, conveyor of tradition and knowledge, and signifier of individual and community identity by requiring the study of an indigenous language, for example, Ojibwe or Cree. An international focus will prepare students to take leadership positions in the private and public sectors, to create and influence policy, to creatively approach development and governance from an indigenous perspective, and to promote the visibility and recognition of sovereign Indigenous peoples and communities in Canada and abroad.

The MA in Indigenous Governance pursues the enhancement of higher learning and advanced research for students and faculty while striving to contribute to the social, political, economic and intellectual aspirations and interests of Indigenous people, communities and nations in Canada and in the international sphere. Its uniqueness and innovative character derives primarily from the historical, political and legal context of Manitoba and Treaty One Territory, while making the intellectual heritage of Indigenous peoples a dynamic feature and extending its scholarly inquire to the broader domestic and international context. Required courses include topics of Indigenous self-determination and self-government, Indigenous Knowledge and Wisdom, languages, and specialized research methods and ethics.

The program’s specific objectives are to:
-Provide studies in matters of good governance grounded in indigenous thought and values.
-Provide an in-depth understanding of the human, environmental and financial issues and processes relevant to indigenous self-determination.
-Promote leadership and skills in areas of policy development and professional practice relevant to indigenous governance and public service organizations working with Indigenous peoples.
-Create an intellectual space of excellence to engage indigenous and non-indigenous scholars in the gathering, application and evolution of indigenous knowledges, philosophies and governance models.

The focus of the degree is on the theory and practice of the distinctive cultural, social, economic, political and legal environments of Indigenous governance. MA in Indigenous Governance offers a thesis-based or practicum-based program.

Human rights. Climate change. Land and territory. Biodiversity. Water. Language and heritage. Natural resources. Social inclusion. Economic disparity. Disease. Population. Sovereignty. There is no fundamentally important political, social, economic, and cultural issue of our time that does not affect, and that is not affected by, Indigenous Peoples. And there is no development process that can unfold successfully without understanding Indigenous ways of life and Indigenous world views. That is why the core of the University of Winnipeg Master’s in Development Practice program integrates fully and seamlessly the theory and practice of development with the experience of Indigenous culture and knowledge.

The Master's in Development Practice program (MDP) is an innovative professional degree offered by a network of over thirty leading universities on six continents. At the University of Winnipeg, the MDP uniquely focuses on Indigenous development - the only program in the world to focus on how Indigenous knowledge and experience can help shape a sustainable path for development, rooted in culture and identity.

Foster the pathway of knowledge to strength, independence and growth for future generations.

The Master of Māori and Indigenous Business (MMAIBus) is an online, part-time masters degree designed to equip you with the dynamic business expertise to lead and manage a Māori or Indigenous business.

The burgeoning Māori economy needs skilled business graduates to drive sustainable local, national and international growth - and this highly practical degree will set you up to be at the forefront of Māori or Indigenous-led enterprises.

This three-year course is aimed at those who wish to advance their professional career and move into a senior leadership/management role. It's also ideal for anyone who wants to start their own entrepreneurial business.

The course is designed to maximise the impact of Māori on New Zealand's economic development and wellbeing.

You'll gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to develop executable business strategies and make better business decisions, enriched by an understanding of Māori cultural values and Indigenous approaches to business.

Course content

The course consists of 12 core papers covering topics such as the Māori economy; process and project management; marketing; innovation and entrepreneurship; finance and accounting; people management; and international business.

Each paper is a 10-week block of study, and you'll normally complete four papers a year (40 weeks) for three years.

Students will analyse real-life case studies of Māori businesses, and engage with a wide range of Māori and Indigenous business leaders.

You'll also learn about the importance of ethical business practices and Māori values in contributing to sustainability, improved stewardship of taonga (treasures), community wellbeing, and tikanga Māori (Māori culture).

Towards the end of the course, you'll complete a capstone project investigating a real-world business issue, and undertake an advanced social enterprise project.

Online learning - when and where it suits you

This programme is delivered as an online partnership between six New Zealand universities, providing you with access to some of the country's leading business academics and practitioners.

Partners include the University of Auckland, Auckland University of Technology, Massey University, University of Otago, Victoria University of Wellington, and the University of Waikato.

Students can enrol with the preferred university of their own choice - whether that's in your home region or further afield.

All classes are taught online, allowing you to complete the work when and where it suits you, through a combination of individual learning and online group activities. There will be webinars, videos, class discussions, readings, interactive tasks and weekly tutorials.

At the University of Waikato, our classes will be jointly delivered by http://www.management.ac.nz" target="_blank">Waikato Management School and the Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies.

Kaupapa Māori teaching and learning

The teaching and learning style is kaupapa Māori, and is designed to support students' academic and business success.

To get you started, the programme kicks off with a two-day wānanga to connect you with your national community of MMAIBus staff and students. Support services will be explained to you during the wānanga.

Students will also have opportunities to meet face-to-face with staff and other students at their nearest university every week, to facilitate group activities and support whakawhanaungatanga.

This will help you to build and connect with a large network of future Māori business leaders across the country.

The course content has evolved from consultation with iwi, hapū and whānau, government, senior Māori academics, and community and corporate leaders.

Course outline

The underlying philosophy of the LLM is to develop specialists in the field of International and Commercial Law. The programme attracts students from a wide variety of backgrounds with different experiences. It stresses the importance of interaction between staff and student, as well as between student and student. We believe this is an essential element in the development of effective lawyers in this area.

Following successful completion of the LLM in International and Commercial Law, you should have developed a range of skills, which include:

• A sound understanding of each of the chosen areas of the law
• Confidence in the analysis of complex case-law
• The ability to make your argument convincingly, orally and in writing
• The ability to take a co-operative approach to problem solving

Start dates

Students may take the LLM over

• 12 months starting in September; or
• 9 months starting in January.

Teaching methods

Seminars are the primary teaching method for this course. They encourage the development of clear analytical skills and create a forum where you can test your ideas against the arguments of your peers. Whether you enter the legal profession or business world you will find it is essential to have developed persuasive abilities. LLM options are taught in the form of three hours of seminars spread over each of the teaching weeks of the course. LLM seminars for subjects which are also taught at LLB level take place in two hour blocks every fortnight.

You are expected to read the cases and other materials relevant to the particular seminar in advance. At the seminar you will be asked to support your opinions and discuss your analysis of the area with your fellow students. In some modules you may be expected to make a presentation on a topic given to you by your tutor. Whilst these tasks may seem daunting at the beginning of the year, you will rapidly gain confidence as your debating skills develop.

Where seminars are on a fortnightly basis, the course will be supported by three hours of lectures per week during the lecturing period. Seminars will complement the lecture series.

Course material is available on the University’s own Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Moodle. This allows students to download lecture notes, submit assignments and share resources in an electronic forum both within the University’s computer network and remotely.

The University of Winnipeg has received provincial approval for the creation of a new two-year Master of Arts in Criminal Justice degree which can be pursued full or part-time and will include the option to take courses in Indigenous Governance and the Public Administration graduate programs. It is the first graduate program of its kind in Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, or Northwestern Ontario.

“The MA in Criminal Justice is an important addition to the suite of innovative, multidisciplinary graduate programs offered by the University of Winnipeg.,” said Dr. Mavis Reimer, Dean of Graduate Studies. “This degree will offer a stream designed for professionals in the various sectors of the justice system and a stream designed for research students. An important focus of the program will be on Indigenous justice issues, supporting and extending the commitment of the University to the Indigenization of its curriculum.”

The new degree is expected to begin in 2018-2019 and once fully established, will accommodate 25 students in the program. Criminal justice is a popular undergraduate program at UWinnipeg with 630 undergraduate students currently selecting it as their major.

“We are very excited to have received approval for this new Master’s which will provide students with opportunities to learn about all aspects of the criminal justice system including policing, criminal law, and corrections,” said Dr. Steven Kohm, Chair, Criminal Justice. “Students in our MA program will be able to contribute to meaningful debate and serious research into pressing issues of justice facing Manitoba and Canada. This strengthens UWinnipeg’s leadership in justice education in Western Canada.”

The new Master’s will offer either a course-based stream or a thesis stream, designed for those continuing to PhD work. Concentrations within the program will be on traditional criminal justice theory, methods, criminal justice policy, and program evaluation.

The program is expected to attract professionals already working in the field as well as undergraduates from criminal justice and related disciplines such as sociology, political science, and conflict resolution. The new degree is also expected to appeal to adult learners already established in justice and social-service professions. The program has designed opportunities for students to pursue electives in the graduate Indigenous Governance program, with a view to specifically attracting students interested in Indigenous justice issues.

Criminal justice is a discipline that has arisen at the intersection of several disciplines, including law, psychology, sociology, urban studies, and criminology since the 1960s. The UWinnipeg approach is multi-disciplinary.
