400-level Research Practicum

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.
