At the heart of the First Nations and Indigenous Studies major is FNIS 400, the research practicum. Each year FNIS invites more than 100 Aboriginal organizations to identify research needs that a student might address. Students meet with organizations and work to negotiate, design, and implement a project that will address the organization’s needs. Students routinely identify the Research Practicum as the most meaningful experience of their undergraduate careers, a place where theory and practice coincide, bringing the university and community together to accomplish work of lasting value.
