New Indigenous Studies Minor and Fall 2022 Courses

Posted by Tim on June 17, 2022 in Academics, New Programs

The Department of Indigenous Studies will offer an undergraduate minor, effective in Fall 2022. The minor provides an introduction to the interdisciplinary field of Indigenous Studies. Our approach to learning centers Indigenous experiences in regional, national and international contexts through exposure to course work on Indigenous knowledge systems, land-based learning, history, politics, languages, gender, media representation, Indigenous- settler relations, literature and art.

The IDS minor will require a total of at least 18 credits and 3 tracks will be offered:

  • General Indigenous Studies Track
  • Haudenosaunee Language Track
  • Land-Based Learning Track

The Department of Indigenous Studies will administer the program.  I will be providing academic advising to minor students. Please email me for more information: Amanda Casali
