• One other elective course drawn from the above list or approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies and American Indian Studies Concentration Coordinator
We occasionally offer topics courses and seminars that are not listed above. These can still be counted toward fulfilling the major concentration with approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies and American Indian and Indigenous Studies Concentration Coordinator.
In addition, as their elective, students may choose a course focusing on Indigenous peoples outside of the present-day borders of the United States. Until a formal change to the major and minor concentration is approved and takes effect, students must petition the Director of Undergraduate Studies and American Indian and Indigenous Studies Concentration Coordinator to have them count.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies or the American Indian and Indigenous Studies Coordinator.
