Alaska Native Studies Minor


Students may select one of two areas to complete the requirements for the minor: 
policy focus or 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 Alaska Native Studies Minor provides a valuable enrichment to any UAA baccalaureate degree. 

**A minimum of 19 credits is required for the minor, of which 6 credits must be upper division.**
