Program Overview

Program Description:

Native American Studies (NAS) is an interdisciplinary program that reflects an awareness of the issues which contemporary Native American communities and peoples confront. When students approach the multiplicity of Native American cultures from a variety of academic perspectives, they gain a deeper understanding of indigenous societies past and present. NAS courses are taught by university faculty members in history, archaeology, political science, business, nursing, legal studies, art, English, professional programs in human services, and other disciplines.

We also offer a BA in Native American Studies - Cultural Resource Management (CRM). CRM students learn to manage cultural resources that include heritage and the arts. Archaeology and the study of material culture is central to their work. In addition to understanding Native American history and culture, students pursuing this major will learn about tribal, federal, state, and local regulations and guidelines that impact how we manage cultural resources.
