18 credit hours required.

The study of indigenous peoples of the Americas – their prehistory, history and cultures – is the focus of courses taught. The minor in Native American Studies is a vehicle enabling students interested in the serious and intensive study of Native Americans to benefit from its diverse offerings. It is intended to provide a systematic program of study in which the complementary nature of these courses is fully explored to enhance the understanding gained from each.
