UC San Diego students can now add native speakers
American and Indian Studies up to their titles
By Phoebe Jump
UC San Diego students can now study indigenous communities in the United States and abroad by adding a concentration in Native American and Indian Studies (NAIS) to their degrees. Undergraduate students can follow a minor. And, exceptionally, graduate students in any UC San Diego department can complete a certificate at NAIS.
The new doctoral certificate program draws on disciplines ranging from anthropology to physics and environmental studies. Andrew Jolivétte, chair of the Department of Ethnic Studies at UC San Diego and director of the NAIS program, explained that students will build a strong foundation at NAIS. As part of the certificate, they will analyze the historical and contemporary situations of indigenous communities and understand the intellectual and methodological contributions of NAIS to academia, higher education and the general population.
Jolivétte said the certificate will prepare students for careers in public policy, law, medicine, the arts, Native science and cultural ecology, and 21st-century leadership on issues of importance related to Native American and indigenous communities.
