Students who enroll in the new American Indian Studies masters program at Arizona State University this fall will delve into studies aimed at providing a comprehensive view of Native American life with the opportunity to work directly with tribes.

The degree includes a number of different disciplines. It gives students an opportunity to focus on Indian concerns from an interdisciplinary perspective.

It grounds students in Native American knowledge and experiences, said John Tippeconnic, American Indian Studies director. American Indian Studies focuses on American Indian people and tribes, their experiences over time and into the future.

Broadening the scope of American Indian Studies at ASU is a natural extension in Arizona where there are 22 tribes and one quarter of the land mass is Native American land.

The deadline to apply for the new program is May 25. To find out more, visit
