uSask introduces Indigenous language certificates

May 20, 2015

The University of Saskatchewan’s College of Education and College of Arts and Science have signed an MOU to enhance and deliver First Nations, Métis, and Inuit programming, beginning with Indigenous language certificates. The College of Education will this fall begin offering a certificate in Cree language proficiency that will be recognized by the provincial education ministry as a specialized qualification for teachers in SK. The College of Arts and Science will this fall hire a tenure-track faculty member focused on Cree, leading to the language certificate also being offered through the Department of Native Studies. The ten-course certificate will take two years to complete. uSask News
