This 4 year-degree degree program is to produce graduates for employment as cultural teachers/instructors/professors, cultural interpreters, cultural social workers, health care workers, community service workers, community liaisons, health educators, various leadership roles and other relevant occupations.

The program consists of a variety of practical hands-on projects along with formal classroom instruction, which produces a well-rounded individual able to perform the duties required for entering Diné cultural related occupations. Students participate in classroom, hands- on laboratory, and field experiences while working with instructors and mentors in real life situations.

Students are also required to serve as interns after the fourth semester. Both English and Navajo languages are used in all areas of Western and Diné cultural education. The program is designed with two tracks: Course of study for Navajo Speakers and Course of Study for Non-Navajo Speakers.
