There is only one field of study in this program which is Aboriginal and World Indigenous Educational Studies.
All students are required to take EDUC-872* Educational Research in Aboriginal and Indigenous Contexts, and it is a prerequisite for the advanced research courses, i.e. EDUC-875* and EDUC-876*
To be considered for admission to the Master of Education AWIES program, applicants must provide evidence of:
In addition to the above, an applicant must submit two letters of support from respected members of the applicant's Aboriginal or world indigenous community to which they either belong or are related. Since preference will be given to qualified applicants of Aboriginal ancestry (Status, non-Status, Métis, Inuit) applicants may be requested to provide proof of Aboriginal ancestry where applicable. Documentation which provides proof of Aboriginal ancestry may include: a status card, church records, a Métis card, a verification letter from an official Political Territorial Organization (PTO) or First Nations.
Applicants whose native languages do not include English must obtain a score of 580 or more on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
Probationary status may be applicable for candidates who do not meet the admission requirements as described above. A description of this status can be found in the School of Graduate Studies calendar online at: http://www.queensu.ca/calendars/sgsr/Graduate_Student.html
