Welcome to the Alaska Native Studies Program
The Alaska Native Studies Program (AKNS) provides an introduction to Alaska Native and Indigenous ways of knowing and seeing the world. The program emphasizes Alaska Native languages, cultures, politics, art, and provides an in-depth perspective on traditional and contemporary Native 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 peoples and cultures. The Alaska Native Studies minor provides valuable enrichment to any UAA baccalaureate degree. The variety of all courses provides a meaningful understanding for all students.
Alaska Native Studies Program office is located on the third floor of the Social Sciences Building room 378
