Native American Studies Minor

(9 hours)

The minimum requirement for the graduate minor is 9 credits taken at the 8000 and/or 9000 levels.

A student’s program will be planned in consultation with the Native American Studies (NAS) Graduate advisor, who will hold graduate faculty status. This cross-disciplinary minor will include choices among approved graduate lecture courses, seminars, and directed reading courses.

Three (3) hours of thesis can be counted toward the minimum requirement of 9 credits, but only in the graduate advisor and the thesis committee members agree that the topic is related to Native American studies.

Students must complete each course of their 9-credit minor with a grade of “B” (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better.

No comprehensive exam will be required after completion of the three required courses for the minor.
