Program delivery

The Masters in Indigenous Language revitalization is delivered in an intensive format with classes being held on the UVic campus.

You will attend classes for approximately 3 weeks during the first summer, then several 5 to 8 day sessions throughout the year. During those sessions an entire course will be taught.

You will need to have access to a computer, internet, and email to be successful in the program. Much of the course work is done through an online learning platform and outside of the intensive sessions.

Please see the Academic Calendar for courses and admissions requirements.
