¿Qué aprenderé?

The American Indian Studies major provides a general introduction for students who anticipate advanced study at the graduate level in either American Indian studies, ethnic studies, or the traditional disciplines or careers in research, administration, public service, and community service related to American Indian communities.

The program is designed to offer a coherent and comprehensive curriculum in American Indian cultures, societies, and contemporary issues in addition to valuable background in more traditional disciplines such as anthropology, art history, economics, education, history, law, linguistics, literature, sociology, and world arts and cultures. Students acquire a critical knowledge of the concepts, theories, and methods that have produced knowledge about American Indians in the traditional disciplines. Students are encouraged to develop a concentration -- or special expertise -- in these fields to accompany the major.

The curriculum encompasses the cultural, historical, political, and social experiences of Native Americans in the Americas. Through courses on Native American literature, languages, theater, and contemporary societies and through more culturally specific courses on California Indians, cultures of the Pueblo southwest, and so on, the major provides an in-depth and broad knowledge on the experience of Native Americans not only in the U.S. and Canada but in Mexico and Latin America as well.
