The College of St. Scholastica

St. Scholastica’s unique program gives students the opportunity to create a program of self-designed study of Ojibwe Language and Culture. These aspects of society go hand in hand, and program coursework focuses on the relationship between the two.

This program teaches the Ojibwe language with a practical approach that makes learning more accessible. Courses build skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Students will be well on their way to becoming bilingual.

Program graduates will gain enhanced communication abilities while broadening their knowledge of the Anishinaabe cultural expression and worldview. Whether it’s experiencing the traditional art form of storytelling or seeing revitalization first-hand in Ojibwe language immersion schools, students learn the language and culture through community involvement.

Graduates are currently employed in a variety of industries, including education, business, health care and more.
