First Nations Ed.D. Schedule & Courses

Educate and Reconnect

We aim to support and connect you, communities, Nations and beyond.

To deepen your understanding of Indigenous teaching and learning, you’ll explore topics like traditional (precontact) worldviews of the Indigenous peoples, Indigenous governance, the impact of Euro-American colonization and its resulting trauma, grant writing and the relationship between your work and Indigenous education.

Doctoral timetable

The 54-credit degree program consists of a set of core courses offered primarily in face-to-face settings. During the first two years of the program, you'll work collaboratively in classes, including summers. Then, in years three and four, you'll complete your applied dissertation project.

Classes take place on the weekend, about every three weeks including summers. In year four of the FNED program, you can attend class virtually. This altered mode of class is meant to help you balance work, your personal life and your doctoral degree. To view the complete schedule, log in to SIS or view the link below.
