Native American Studies Immersion

The Native American studies immersion enhances students’ knowledge of the unique heritage of Native Americans and their relationships with people from other communities and nations. This enhanced understanding is grounded in the study of the histories, collective memories, cultures, and languages of Native Americans and the representations, stereotypes, and pertinent laws and policies governing their lives. Courses emphasize indigenous ways of knowing and learning in the past and present. This immersion is closed to students majoring in sociology and anthropology who have chosen the cultural anthropology track and to students majoring in international and global studies who have chosen the indigenous studies track.
