The Native American Studies at Dartmouth College faculty consists of scholar-teachers with a broad range of expertise from diverse backgrounds, including Native faculty members from the United States and Canada and non-Native faculty from the United States, Russia, and Britain. The Native American Studies Program attracts a varied body of students who bring their own perspectives to the classroom setting. Our students build upon their individual experiences and understandings in a shared learning environment.

Learning outcomes

We have since expanded the agenda with new courses, reflecting the important commitment Dartmouth places on excellence in education and staying current with recent developments in the various fields of Native American scholarship.

At present, faculty hold dual appointments in Anthropology, History, Environmental Studies, Government, and English. We augment our regular offerings with additional NAS courses cross-listed with other departments.

Students develop an individual program that reflects their interest but is built on certain required courses to ensure that they acquire a common body of substantive knowledge, gain exposure to crucial ways of critical thinking, and explore several essential approaches to Native American Studies.
