Native American Studies offers a Master of Arts (MA) degree in Native American Studies with an interdisciplinary approach which makes the best possible use of university resources. The program allows each graduate student the opportunity to select a course of study which combines Native American Studies and a student's particular area of interest (e.g., history, business, literature, political science). The 30-credit program is designed so that each graduate student should be able to complete the program within three to four semesters of concentrated work. Students will be expected to attend at least two full semesters on campus. The program's mission, purpose, and objective emphasis is to graduate, in a timely manner, knowledgeable professionals and academicians well grounded in Native American issues and scholarship.
