The Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Studies enhances the qualifications of students seeking careers in academic settings, government and other public service, and the private sector. The certificate provides students with knowledge essential to understand a broad range of historical, political, religious, and social issues affecting Indigenous peoples. Students earn an additional credential while integrating knowledge of Indigenous issues into their own academic disciplines or professional training.

Enrollment in the program is open to students admitted to a regular KU graduate program as well as students who are not currently enrolled at KU.
