Indigenous Studies Undergraduate Minor

Indigenous Studies Undergraduate Minor
The minor in Indigenous Studies is designed to provide undergraduate students with a focused program of study of the events, laws, policies, and treaties that have defined the relationship between the United States and Indigenous nations and peoples. This knowledge is essential to analysis of a broad variety of historical, political, religious, and social issues in the U.S. Such issues are of paramount importance to ensure the students a solid grounding in the histories and cultures of the Indigenous peoples of North America, while allowing them to gain disciplinary knowledge in preparation for graduate study or immediate employment in fields such as government services, museum/archival work, etc.
