The program offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Native Americans with specific focus in history, culture, politics and other important issues. Courses in Native American Studies may be taken to satisfy the requirements for a minor, or to meet the needs of the student’s educational interests. Many of the courses also fulfill a multicultural requirement.
The Department of Political Science, the home of the Native American Studies minor, delivers all the academic content you expect while also bringing to the table everything that’s unique about MSU Denver’s people and Denver’s political community. Students here have the advantage of the following unique opportunities:
An Ideal Complement to Any Major
The minor provides an ideal complement to a variety of majors, from those seeking a greater cultural competence, to majors in fields devoted to dealing with issues especially prevalent in Native American communities, and any student seeking to understand the historic and contemporary state of Native American peoples.
Earning a minor in Native American Studies from MSU Denver prepares students for further graduate studies or for careers in public and private sectors including state, local and federal and tribal governments and their agencies; public policy; law; business and journalism.
