Welcome to the Alaska Native Studies Program
The Alaska Native Studies Program provides the student with an introduction to Alaskan Native ways of knowing and seeing the world, an experiential and theoretical exploration of Alaskan Native cultures, and a series of critical perspectives on traditional and contemporary Native experiences and politics in a pluralistic society. Students may select one of two areas to complete the requirements for the minor: a policy focus or a language focus. Both of these areas emphasize the dynamic nature of Alaska Native cultures and the conflict between traditional Native values and those of the dominant Euro-American society. The Alaskan Native Studies minor provides valuable enrichment to any UAA baccalaureate degree.
Alaska Native Studies Program office is located on the third floor of the Social Sciences Building room 378
