American Indian Studies Program
The American Indian studies program provides knowledge of the traditions and history of the first Americans and an understanding of the unique relationship of the United States government to the tribes and individual American Indians. Its curriculum has shifted to accommodate changing contemporary requirements of students. Greater emphasis has been placed on acquiring quantitative skills and on study in financial management and intergovernmental relations. The goal of the American Indian studies program is to develop a diverse student body to include American Indians from the many tribes in Oklahoma and the nation. In addition to traditional on-campus offerings, the program also offers extension inservice and mid-career training.
