American Indian Studies

Overview

About the program

The American Indian Studies (AIS) Program offers students the chance to earn an academic certificate. Certificate attainment strengthens numerous degrees including those in anthropology, art, business, history, education, literature, political science, social work and sociology to name a few.  American Indian Studies courses prepare students to live and work in an increasingly diverse community and also equip students with skills to work cooperatively and effectively with tribal governments and businesses. Although interdisciplinary, American Indian Studies encompasses a distinct body of knowledge. The program’s faculty and staff members are encouraged to continue ongoing research into American Indian issues.
