American Indian Studies (AMIS) provides students opportunities to understand American Indian language, literature, culture, and tribal structure in both a historical and modern context. 

The AMIS minor is designed to complement the student’s major area of study, encouraging students to expand their cultural knowledge and to gain an appreciation for American Indian cultures of Oklahoma, the region, and the nation. The purpose of the minor is to offer an interdisciplinary program for Native American and non-Native American students who wish to concentrate in the study of American Indian culture, history, and language or who may be preparing for careers in tribal affairs or other related professional employment. If interested, contact your undergraduate advisor to declare the minor.

The AMIS Minor requires eighteen (18) hours. Twelve (12) hours must be upper-division (i.e., 3000 - 4000 level course). GPA of 3.00 with no grade below a "C." The AMIS Minor is achieved after completion of each of the following requirements:
