Native American Studies

The Native American Studies program is designed to broaden educational opportunities for American Indian students and provide an educational experience for those interested within the total student body. In addition, the program provides students with a rich interdisciplinary approach to theoretical, historical, and contemporary perspectives regarding the study of native peoples. We seek to develop leaders for our Native and non-Native communities. As a fourth goal, the program seeks to enhance cultural awareness and identity in the classroom, the campus and campus community.

Within the Ethnic Studies Department, the Native American Studies Program offers a degree concentration leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Ethnic Studies. In addition, we offer a Minor in Native American Studies.
