Administration of the program
Courses must be approved by the faculty of the Native American Studies Committee for
inclusion in the minor.
The Native American Studies Program is an interdisciplinary minor course of study
allowing students to concentrate on the history, arts, and cultures of native peoples
of the Americas. The minor in Native American Studies offers a multidisciplinary exploration
of the history, arts, and cultures of the first Americans, past and present. It can
be an excellent complement to many majors, including art, history, and anthropology.
The knowledge provided will be valuable if not essential in any career that involves
working with Native Americans in business, social services, public administration,
or health and medicine. The minor will also stimulate awareness and appreciation of
the ethnic and cultural diversity of the United States, which is an increasing concern
in the workforce and society today, as well as the importance of cultural heritage.
