Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Interdisciplinary Majors and Minors

Advisor: Kevin E. Smith, Department of Sociology and Anthropology

The minor in Native American Studies draws upon the resources of art, English, geography and geology, history, and sociology and anthropology to provide a comprehensive examination of the prehistory, history, culture, literature, art, and contemporary issues of Native Americans. The minor in Native American Studies requires 18 credit hours, including 3 hours of required courses, and 15 hours of general electives from the list below. Note: ANTH 4910 , ART 3870 , ART 4960 , PGEO 4280 , and UH 3500  (directed, independent study, or variable topics courses) cannot be applied towards this minor without prior approval of the minor advisor. No more than 3 hours of these courses may be applied towards the minor.

Interdisciplinary Minors

Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Except for the Paralegal Studies minor, no course may be counted both for major and minor credit. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
