American Indian Studies Certificate

American Indian Studies

The interdisciplinary curriculum provides thematic foundations in history, sovereignty and government, language, literature and fine arts, as well as federal Indian law and policy.  A certificate in American Indian Studies potentially prepares an individual with insightful knowledge and awareness of the historical/cultural legacy of American Indian tribes as well as skills that enhance employment opportunities in such fields as gaming, archaeology, education, art, social services and resource management.

The AIS certificate gets you a great jump start to transfer requirements for CSU and UC.
