Certificate in Indigenous Language II

This 10-course program of study builds on the Certificate of Indigenous Language I by adding advanced studies in the chosen language, including in its linguistic structure, literature and culture. 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 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.


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

  • Courses to Complete: 10 core
