The University of North Carolina at Pembroke was established in 1887 as an institution for Native Americans. Since 1953, it has had a multi‑racial student body. Because of its heritage, the University, through this Department, offers a program to educate students about the rich diversity of American Indian history and culture, to promote research and scholarship concerning American Indian issues, and to prepare students for professional or scholarly careers.
The Department offers a B.A., a minor, and an academic concentration in American Indian Studies. Students are encouraged to select courses that touch on as many different aspects of American Indian history and culture as possible.
