About American Indian Studies

The new American Indian Studies Minor in Native American Cultures and Certificate in American Indian and Indigenous Studies allows students to earn a minor or certificate in AIS to enhance their major area of study and still graduate on time.

This is possible because American Indian Studies has developed nineteen partnerships in three colleges with Schools, Departments and Programs that make earning a Minor in AIS both relevant to your career and easier to accomplish. Many majors lead to professions that impact American Indians, so gaining knowledge about American Indian People increases the value of these degrees. These partnerships allow students to take courses that count both for their major requirements and also for the Minor or Certificate in American Indian Studies.

AIS has partnerships with the following:

American Studies • Anthropology • Art • Art History • Comparative World Literature • English • Film & Electronic Arts • Geography • History • Human Development • Journalism • Kinesiology • Museum Studies • Music • Philosophy • Political Science • Recreation & Leisure Studies • Social Work• Women’s Gender & Sexuality Studies
