The teaching of the Mi’kmaq language has been revitalized over the past fifteen years through a combined effort of the Mi'kmaq Kina'matnewey and the Faculty of Education. The St FX Faculty of Education has supported the development and credentialing of Mi’kmaq teachers since the inception of the Memorandum of Understanding with Mi’kmaq Communities in 1995 and have prepared over 150 Mi’kmaq teachers for work within provincial and band-operated schools. The demand for Mi’kmaq language teachers continues to grow across the Atlantic Provinces, both for Core and also for Immersion in several communities. Applicants pursuing a Mi’kmaq focus in their studies may develop a concentration in language and/or culture. The language focus requires oral fluency in Mi’kmaq and at least 18 credits in Mi’kmaq language-related courses in the first degree.
