Native American Studies

Haynes NAS Center Logo
Welcome to Native American Studies at ECU!
We offer both a B.A. and a minor in Native Studies. Native Studies is an interdisciplinary program that reflects an awareness of the issues which contemporary native communities and peoples confront. By approaching the multiplicity of Indian cultures from a variety of academic perspectives, a deeper understanding of native societies past and present, emerges. It makes use of the strengths of university faculty members in history, political science, business, nursing, legal studies, art, English, human resources, and other disciplines.
