Native American Studies

We are proud to offer a minor in Native American Studies, in which students can gain a deeper knowledge of the rich cultural heritage of our continent's indigenous peoples. 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 particularly well suited for those seeking careers in heritage management or government.
