This graduate program combines course work with practical experience and is grounded in ceremony. The goal of the program is to provide students with the opportunity to further develop their understanding of language revitalization by providing a forum for exchange of their ideas and share insights through active participation in colloquia, research groups and ceremony.
The program is designed for students who have already achieved fluency in spoken Cree and who are working towards competency in reading Cree texts written in either SRO or Syllabics. An additional goal of the program is to build on student’s linguistic knowledge of their language in relation to second language acquisitions planning. This program provides students an opportunity to explore issues in the following topic areas: linguistic analysis, language revitalization, phonetics, SRO and Syllabics, second language acquisition, language documentation and languages in the global context.
