The Native American Studies program at MSU-Northern offers an interdisciplinary education that examines the cultures, history, literature, and politics of American Indians. A minor in Native American Studies is an excellent complement to Education, Community Leadership, History and Liberal Studies majors, and it offers strong preparation for a career that deals with Native American affairs.
Cultural Understanding – Courses include topics in Native American language, philosophy, history, culture, and politics.
Multiple Tribal Studies – Gain the opportunity to explore issues pertaining to Montana Indians as well as tribes from other regions.
Historical and Contemporary Issues – Cover historical topics and contemporary issues for coursework that is relevant and well grounded through the Native American Studies program.
A minor in Native American Studies complements a variety of different majors and is valuable for students who plan to work in Montana, where there is a large population of Native Americans. MSU-Northern graduates with an NAS minor have been hired by local Native American governments to fill professional positions necessary for tribal success. Other graduates go on to pursue related careers in education, social work, museum curating, community outreach, and law.
