Minor - Native American Studies
The interdisciplinary minor in Native American Studies gives students a deeper knowledge of the rich cultural heritage of our continent's indigenous peoples. The minor provides students an opportunity to learn about the historical and contemporary struggles and achievements of Native Americans. Over the years our students have had the opportunity to work and study in collaboration with the Muwekma Ohlone, the Paiute, and other descendant communities. The Native American minor is particulary well suited for those seeking careers in heritage management or government.
