Native American Studies Minor

The Native American Studies Program offers undergraduate and graduate courses in the field. Its curriculum includes an undergraduate minor and graduate courses organized around multiple disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

The minor in Native American Studies permits students to explore the North American Indian experience in an interdisciplinary manner. The goal of the minor is to assist students in coherently planning a curriculum that will enable them to grapple intelligently and in an informed manner with the history, experience, and contributions of Native Americans in the United States and Canada. Courses in language, literature, the social sciences, and the humanities form the main areas of study, but students may occasionally have an opportunity to explore Native American arts, historic and contemporary.

Students interested in pursuing a minor in NAS should contact the Director of Native American Studies. To schedule an advising appointment in NAS, please follow the link to our Advising page.
