Indigenous Studies Minor
Also available via Ecampus.
Oregon State University’s Indigenous Studies Minor is founded and grounded in the understanding that indigeneity and innovation are central to the health, well-being and survivance of indigenous communities. The mission of the Indigenous Studies Minor is to educate university graduates about Indigenous histories and contemporary issues, develop and enhance their responsibilities to Indigenous knowledges, build their skills for supporting Indigenous self-determination and sovereignty, offer engagement in the work of decolonization, and prepare them to work collaboratively with Indigenous communities and peoples at the local, regional, national and international level.
