This program allows students to obtain a J.D. and an M.A. in Indigenous Studies in four years. It is of special interest to students who intend to become leaders and policymakers in indigenous communities worldwide. Admission to both the School of Law and the Master’s Program in Indigenous Studies is required. The program objectives are:

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