Languages of specialization currently available include, but are not limited to, Cree, Saulteaux (Ojibwe), Dene, Dakota and Nakota.

This certificate can also serve as a building block towards more advanced study, including an Arts minor, the Certificate of Indigenous Language II, or (for Cree and Saulteaux) a full degree program, and specialized study in language instruction through Indigenous Education.

*Note: all program courses specific to individual Indigenous languages must be completed in the same language.

This certificate can also serve as a secondary building block towards more advanced study, including specialized study in language instruction through Indigenous Education, and (for Cree and Saulteaux) a full Arts degree program.
