Humboldt State University

Native American Studies

a proud tradition, a strong future

Native American Studies at Humboldt State is more than an academic discipline. We're a continuation of Indigenous knowledge from time immemorial, presenting a depth of Native American experience from a distinctly tribal perspective. As the first CSU campus to offer a baccalaureate degree in Native American Studies, and still the only program of its kind in the CSU, NAS continues to develop as a stand-alone department, with active input from tribes.

Humboldt State is not only a proven leader in serving Native American students in California, but our broad program appeals to non-Native students who are passionate about issues of social justice, sustainable living and natural resource management.

After graduation I plan to become a teacher and use the knowledge I've gained from Native American Studies to educate others and create a classroom respectful of all cultures.
