Indigenous Studies Graduate Program
The Indigenous Studies graduate program provides students with in-depth knowledge of Indigenous peoples’ complex and diverse cultures and histories, as well as their impacts on the global society. Our multidisciplinary program offers students the advantage of studying relevant issues from a wide range of academic perspectives. The expertise of our affiliate faculty members includes Native American history; Indigenous literature; ethnobotany; Indigenous peoples' cultural survival and political activism; American Indian tribal governments; Indigenous geographies; Native American religions; and much more. With rolling admissions, our program offers the flexibility to apply at your convenience and to begin your studies either in the Fall or the Spring semester.
