The American Indian and Indigenous Studies minor focuses on the experiences of American Indian and Indigenous people in the Americas from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective, which includes Anthropology, Art, English, History, Political Science, Sociology, and Women's Studies. This minor will provide an academic and scholarly foundation for students to study and interpret the needs and social/cultural, political, educational, and historical conditions of American Indians and Indigenous peoples in North America. It will help prepare students to work in settings that require an understanding of tribal sovereignty and serving and interacting with this diverse population.
