The graduate Certificate in Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) requires a minimum of 18 s.h. in courses approved for the Native American and Indigenous Studies Program and numbered 3000 or above (see the list below and NAIS Courses in this section of the Catalog). Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 3.00 in work toward the certificate. They may count a maximum of 6 s.h. of course work from their major field of study toward the NAIS certificate.
Graduate students must apply to the academic coordinator to be admitted to the NAIS graduate certificate program. A course of study should be developed in consultation with the NAIS coordinator.
Students who earned an undergraduate certificate in the program may not receive a graduate certificate.
NAIS accepts the following courses as electives. Although these courses are not offered by NAIS, they are concerned in part with Native North Americans or other indigenous peoples of the Americas. Students may petition the NAIS faculty for permission to use other relevant courses as electives for the certificate.
