Indigenous Language Revitalization (MEd)

Join a generation of language experts at the forefront of Indigenous language revitalization efforts.

In this program, you'll be a language scholar with the expertise to lead in post-secondary institutions and communities. Learn how to support the revitalization, reclamation and maintenance of Indigenous languages.

The MEd program is project-based. We also offer a thesis-based MA program, available only with permission upon completion of coursework. Both programs are delivered in a cohort model every 2 years.

The program is delivered online combined with classes on the UVic campus in an intensive format. You’ll attend classes for approximately 3 weeks during the first summer, then several 5-8 day sessions throughout the year.

If you’re unable to complete the full program, you can apply to receive the Graduate Certificate as an exit credential after the first two terms of this program.
