  • Overview

The University of Kansas offers a Professional Science Master’s and Indigenous Studies graduate certificate program. As part of this unique program, students may graduate with both the PSM and a graduate certificate in Indigenous Studies with 39 credit hours, making it an ideal choice for those wishing to employ diverse perspectives in their environmental science careers. Students must apply separately to the Environmental Studies and Indigenous Studies graduate programs.

Graduates of the program go on to become environmental scientists and specialists who protect the environment and human health. Through their work, they identify possible environmental effects of a project or program, propose measures to decrease adverse effects and predict those effects.

Program Objectives

The objectives of this joint degree program are:

  • to facilitate interdisciplinary studies;
  • to support the interest of students who wish to pursue study in both fields; and
  • to provide an educational opportunity that trains candidates for leadership roles in Indigenous communities worldwide, and in state, national, and international institutions and organizations.
