Program description

American Indian Studies Associate of Arts Degree

The American Indian Studies Program provides numerous opportunities to study the cultures, histories, and contemporary lives of the Indigenous nations of North America. Through a wide variety of interdisciplinary classes and interaction with American Indian educators, tribal elders, and peers, students develop their abilities and enhance their knowledge and understandings of native life-ways and traditions. American Indian Studies is designed to provide American Indian and non-Indian students with the clear understanding of the distinct lifestyles, political and philosophical or religious systems, as well as the art, music, histories and literature developed by American Indian tribes.
