American Indian and Indigenous Studies (minor)

Field Description

The American Indian Program offers American Indian Studies as a minor field in graduate studies. Graduate students select a faculty member from the field of American Indian Studies to serve as minor member on their special committee.

They must also take two courses to qualify for the minor: a one-credit colloquium offered once a year in which students and faculty present their research; and a three-credit course in critical approaches to American Indian Studies, also offered once a year. Faculty expertise spans multiple fields, including anthropology, archeology, art history, history, literature, law, sociology, horticulture, and natural resources, enabling students to develop programs that address their specific interests. Faculty with specific research expertise in Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) studies and indigenous issues globally within diverse disciplines further broaden opportunities for study.
