To be accepted into the project, each applicant must be a certified Native American teacher or a certified teacher employed at a school with a significant number of Native American students and have at least one year of teaching or related school experience (counselor or school psychologist).
How long will it take me to get my Master’s Degree in this program?
The sequence of courses will allow participants to secure their degree within two years.
Are all of the courses taught online?
All courses in the project are taught primarily online. However, in June of the first year in the program, participants will attend a face-to-face session held at UNC’s Greeley campus. Dorm housing and student meal tickets will be available to minimize participant expenses.
What kind of computer skills will I need to be successful in the program?
