Native American Studies
Decolonize. Restore. Reclaim. Indigenous knowledge for a contemporary world.
The Native American Programs have taught me the importance of resistance, decolonization, and education. A student on any degree path would hugely benefit from participating in NAP at Southern Oregon University.
The Native American Studies program at Southern Oregon University is a great program with a variety of professors with varies educational and cultural backgrounds that help you succeed during your time here.
Inspiring lecturers, interesting content, friendly classmates, and uplifting atmosphere during classes and additional activities (e.g. field trips, POWWOWs, gatherings, conferences, movie screenings) make Native American Studies Program at SOU undoubtedly special.
I have a MIIS from Southern Oregon University with certificate in NAS and have had the privilege to have worked closely with Professors in particular Dr. Brook Colley of NAS.
Within the Native American Studies program, there’s such a strong sense of community. The faculty encourage collaboration and create environments which are conducive to not only self-development, but also the development of relationships.
The faculty of the Native American Studies department has created a space in which our ever-growing community can find encouragement in all aspects of life. My passion for learning and working for the reclamation of my ancestral language has deepened through my studies here.
