Earn your MA in Indigenous Education with a Native Hawaiian track from ASU

Nov. 1, 2021

After a successful launch in August, the first Hawaiʻi cohort of Arizona State University’s online Master of Arts degree in Indigenous Education is engaged in transformative learning experiences.

The degree’s new Native Hawaiian track is the result of a collaboration between ASU and Kamehameha Schools. Learners can earn their degree in 18 to 24 months.

Out of the ten required courses, Hawaiʻi-based kumu teach four of them:

  • History of Indigenous Education
  • Language and Literacy of Indigenous Peoples
  • Indigenous Knowledges in Education and
  • Current Issues in Indigenous Education.

This latest initiative stems from a partnership that began in 2016. Both ASU and KS share a mission to enrich the communities around them through advancement of education and sustainability.

A virtual information session for students interested in ASU’s Master of Arts degree in Indigenous Education will be held on November 10, 2021. Register for the session and a Zoom invitation will be sent to you.

For more information about the program and to apply, visit the ASU Online web page. The application deadline is December 1, 2021.
