uSask introduces Indigenous language certificates

May 7, 2015

The University of Saskatchewan’s College of Education and College of Arts and Science have signed an MOU to deliver and enhance 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 two-year, ten-course certificate programs will allow students to take courses from both colleges to fulfil requirements. uSask News
