Future and Prospective Students


Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Native American Studies undergraduate degree programs.  Native American Studies is an interdisciplinary program offering a traditional face-to-face degree program, a 100% online Bachelors degree program, or a minor degree.  Students with interest in a variety of academic disciplines consider Native American Studies, especially if you have an interest in working with or for Indigenous people, tribal entities, or tribal-based programs.  NAS is a great space to explore issues and challenges of Indigenous peoples and nations both historically and contemporarily.
