Building from the courage and resolve of Yukon First Nations in trailblazing self-government agreements, Yukon University’s Bachelor of Arts in Indigenous Governance program is the first degree program to be created and offered fully in northern Canada.

Developed in strong collaboration with the 14 Yukon First Nations, the curriculum weaves western and Indigenous worldviews to explore perspectives on the evolution of Indigenous self-determination in Yukon, Canada and internationally.

First offered in 2018, this ground-breaking program is the culmination of years of meaningful partnership and collaboration with Yukon First Nations. It aims to build northern leadership capacity by providing students with the values, knowledge and skills to work collaboratively within the unique governance landscape of the North.
