Secondary Education and Teaching
|Description:||This combined program, offered jointly with the Faculty of Education, allows you to earn two degrees in five years, preparing you to become a teacher for Grades 7-12 while providing you with additional expertise. The first three years of this program are taken in the Faculty of Native Studies, while the last two years are taken in the Faculty of Education. You can choose to major in either Native Studies or Cree. We also offer a combined Native Studies / Elementary Education degree.
We are the only independent Faculty of Native Studies in Canada, with small class sizes and a diverse student population of both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students. We are student-centered, with a close-knit community of students, professors, and staff. We host regular Tea and Bannock potlucks, an annual tipi raising and take-down, and Games Night with the Dean. We are research-focused, with opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research projects. Our courses incorporate traditional Indigenous knowledge and heritage as well as contemporary Indigenous experiences.
