O que eu aprenderei?

The Master’s degree in Indigenous Language Revitalization is offered jointly through the University of Victoria Faculty of Humanities and Faculty of Education.

Our program assists with the development of language experts who will have the academic skills to participate and lead successful language revitalization efforts in Indigenous communities.

Our program also hopes to develop language scholars who will have the expertise to support post-secondary instruction in the revitalization, recovery and maintenance of Indigenous languages.

There is an early exit option available in consultation with the Department Chair and Graduate Advisor through the Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Language Revitalization.

The MILR program is the only one of its kind in Canada. The program is delivered in partnership with the Department of Linguistics and students can exit with a graduate certificate after four courses and/or ladder into the master’s degree program. The program is delivered in a cohort model (every two years) and the next intake is September 2018.

The goals of the program are:

  • to develop skills for successful language projects in community & leadership in recovery, revitalization and maintenance of Indigenous languages
  • to recognize & accredit expertise that exists
  • to develop language scholars to support post-secondary instruction in maintenance of Indigenous languages and culture
  • to increase language capacity in BC Indigenous communities by meeting the needs of language and culture revitalization teachers and researchers
  • to be accessible to learners who cannot leave their communities for more than a few weeks at a time.

Program delivery

The Masters in Indigenous Language revitalization is delivered in an intensive format with classes being held on the UVic campus.

You will attend classes for approximately 3 weeks during the first summer, then several 5 to 8 day sessions throughout the year. During those sessions an entire course will be taught.

You will need to have access to a computer, internet, and email to be successful in the program. Much of the course work is done through an online learning platform and outside of the intensive sessions.
