Faculty of Education : 10.0 Bachelor of Education in Indigenous Language Revitalization
The Bachelor of Education in Indigenous Language Revitalization offered through the Department of Indigenous Education is a community-based, cohort-driven program that is designed for BC Indigenous community members who want to learn their language and become teachers of their language. The Bachelor of Education in Indigenous Language Revitalization is targeted towards those who want to become professional K-12 teachers in hopes of teaching in either a First Nations administrated or public school. Students will continue building their language capacity to ensure they are qualified to teach in an immersion context if desirable. Students enter this program after completing a Diploma in Indigenous Language Revitalization or equivalent coursework approved by the Chair of Indigenous Education.
