Who should be a First Nations Studies Major/Minor?
Everyone and anyone can be an American Indian Studies minor! :)
First of all, if you hope to work with the American Indian population in any way, then this minor will give you endless advantages over other candidates. Did you know that the Oneida Nation is the 2nd largest employer in Wisconsin! If you plan to live and work in Wisconsin, then you need to know about this culture and these people!
If you are looking for a broader perspective on diversity in the Wisconsin community and beyond, then this minor is perfect for you!
The minor can be combined to bolster a number of majors and professional studies, including Business, History, Social Change & Development, Education, Biology, Social Work, Human Development, Psychology, and the Health Services.
You must be willing to talk openly about social issues, and be willing to challenge your world views.
If you are in need of fulfilling your ethnic studies requirement, then this minor is a great option!
