The American Indian Studies BSc program from Arizona State University provides students with unique opportunities to evaluate issues of American Indian nations within domestic and international contexts.


The American Indian Studies BSc program from Arizona State University is committed to broadening the knowledge of students interested in the histories, languages, cultures, arts and contemporary situations of American Indian nations and peoples, and it encompasses legal, policy, community and economic development as well as arts, languages and culture.

The program is designed to protect the integrity and identity of the indigenous populations of North America and to create a learning environment conducive to critical and creative thought.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of the American Indian studies program are qualified to fill positions at the tribal, state and federal government levels and in the private sector. Graduates can advance to graduate school or can pursue professional careers in fields such as government service or public service. For example, federally and tribally operated schools located in remote areas within Indian Country have high turnover rates for both teachers and staff. American Indian studies graduates should be available to help fill these positions. Furthermore, the federal government, a major employer on many reservations across the country, is in need of qualified people who are knowledgeable in Indian cultures, laws and policies. Additionally, many American Indian nations' economies and infrastructures are developing at a rapid pace, and they are in continuous need to fill mid-management and management-level positions.
