Diploma of First Nations Governance and Public Administration
First Nations Governance and Public Administration (FNGPA) is a unique, cutting-edge, accredited, culturally relevant program transferable towards a diploma or degree at a number of academic institutions. It provides practical, relevant academic tools to senior managers to effectively manage First Nation governments.
Designed to be accessible to working professionals and to allow an integration of education into work and family life, ten courses are offered over three years through a combination of in-class and distance education.
Long distance students have an option to participate via videoconferencing technology or to travel to the host community. As well, all students have access to academic and writing support as required.
Course delivery is varied and may include a combination of lectures, seminars, group discussions, presentations and guest speakers.
The FNGPA program builds upon the Executive Development Pilot program certificate, which is a partnership between Champagne and Aishihik First Nations, Yukon University and Yukon government.
The program was created to bridge the gap between existing educational programs and the needs of self-governing First Nations in Yukon. See the program guide.
