Master's in Indigenous Language Revitalization

Our unit in the Faculty of Humanities works in partnership with Indigenous Education in the Faculty of Education to offer a Graduate Certificate and Master's Degree (MA or MEd) in Indigenous Language Revitalization, the first program of its kind in Canada.  Contact our team at Indigenous Education for more information.

The purpose of the program is to ensure a generation of language experts who will have the language and academic skills to participate and lead successful language revitalization efforts in Indigenous communities, and to develop language scholars who will have the expertise to support post-secondary instruction in the revitalization, recovery and maintenance of Indigenous languages. The first class began their coursework in July 2012.
