Global Indigenous Nations Studies Graduate Program

The Global Indigenous Nations Studies Program offers an interdisciplinary master’s degree designed to prepare graduate students for academic careers; to conduct basic and applied scholarly research from a cross-cultural perspective; to develop innovative theories, methodologies, and research tools appropriate for Indigenous cultures; and to prepare candidates for assuming leadership and policy-making roles in Indigenous communities, higher education, and in state, national, and international organizations.

The program faculty consists of both core and affiliated faculty who represent a broad range of interdisciplinary and international skills and interests.
