Native American Studies

Graduate Studies

  • Doctor of Philosophy
  • Master of Arts

The Native American Studies Graduate Group’s interdisciplinary and hemispheric approach includes attention to the increasing diaspora of indigenous peoples throughout the Americas, and calls upon the authority of native intelligence to address the issues that concern native peoples. Topics of study include history; religion; philosophy; government; politics; society; and language and linguistics, as well as indigenous community development for autonomy and sovereignty; colonialism, racism, and self-determination; and ethnohistory. At both the M.A. and Ph.D. levels, students have opportunities to develop their teaching skills through teaching assistant and instructor positions.
