Certificate in Indigenous Language Revitalization (CILR)
The goal of the Certificate Program is to develop understanding of the complex dynamics of language loss, maintenance, and recovery while also providing practical strategies for work in Indigenous communities to preserve and revitalize threatened languages. This program is designed to honour traditional knowledge and practices, to recognize and accommodate the realities and needs of diverse communities, and to provide a foundation for both language revitalization activities and for further study in linguistics, education, and/or cultural resource management.
Participants in the Certificate Program in Indigenous Language Revitalization must complete five core courses (7.5 units) and three elective courses (4.5 units). To ensure that students are themselves actively engaged in the process of learning an Indigenous language, students must take an elective course in an Indigenous language or demonstrate other comparable experience. Please see below under Indigenous Language Requirement.
The certificate is offered primarily in partnership with communities, with occasional courses offered on campus. It may be possible to transfer credits for elective courses from other programs or other colleges and universities; please consult program staff for details.
