The Student's academic program will be interdisciplinary as it is built upon a combination of appropriate courses currently offered in other specialized disciplines and of an integrated set of core courses offered by the Alaska Native studies program.
The Alaska Native studies program is designed to offer a second major or a minor for many bachelor's degree candidates. It seeks students from many fields of specialization who anticipate either direct or indirect professional involvement in Alaskan Native communities specifically and in multicultural settings generally.
The Alaska Native Studies B.A. Program allows qualified students to pursue an intensive academic program with a focus in one of three concentration areas:
• Indigenous Peoples in Law, Governance and Politics
• Alaska Native Knowledge, Cultural Resources and Expression
• Alaska Native Peoples: Health, Wellness and Environment
