Course Offerings and Schedule
This Master of Education course based graduate program offers a suite of courses with a land-based focus. This focus includes intensive land-based field schools where students take graduate level courses framed within an Indigenous paradigm and taught primarily by Indigenous faculty.
Delivery - Course-Based Route
The land-based courses support and accommodate students who are unable to commit to long periods of study away from home. Students are required to live on-site for the duration of field schools (approximately 2 weeks each) so that contact hours with faculty, Indigenous communities and the land are maximized. Land-based field schools are supplemented with on campus or online courses.
Students are required to take a total of ten 3 credit unit courses plus three non-credit courses.
