ASU online’s Master of Arts in Indigenous Education can be completed in 18 – 24 months. This program will build critical understanding of contemporary Indigenous education, as well as train students to envision creative possibilities for the future. Because the Center for Indian Education is housed in the School of Social Transformation with faculty that collaborate with colleagues campus-wide, nationally and internationally, students will have access to a wealth of additional resources at the master’s level, allowing them to tailor their program so that it best fits their specific professional aspirations.
The courses are taught 100% online by Indigenous faculty or faculty with significant experience in Indigenous communities. The Indigenous Education MA degree will focus on Indigenous knowledge systems, current issues in American Indian education, history of American Indian education, issues of Indigenous language and culture, American Indian education policy, American Indians in higher education, and critical Indigenous research methodologies.
Whether a student is an experienced educator working in tribal communities or new to exploring the topic, the MA in Indigenous Education will help them create practical solutions. Our researchers and students work collaboratively with Native communities, and contribute to the advancement of new knowledge, practice, and policy in American Indian/Indigenous education.
