Whether you are an experienced educator working in tribal communities or new to exploring the topic, the Indigenous Education MA program from Arizona State University will help you create practical solutions. Researchers and students work collaboratively with Native communities, and contribute to the advancement of new knowledge, practice and policy in American Indian and Indigenous education. 


The program provides students with advanced training in research, theory and practice related to both Indigenous education, as broadly defined, as well as the process of schooling. 

The primary audience for this degree are those working in Indian education, for tribal nations with education programs, and those interested in Indigenous education. Because the Center for Indian Education is housed in the School of Social Transformation with faculty that collaborate with colleagues nationally, internationally and across ASU campuses, students have access to a wealth of additional resources at the master's degree level, which allow them to develop a final project that best fits their specific professional aspirations.
