The web site Great College Deals ranks UW-Milwaukee as one of the best schools in the country for Native American studies.
The ranking – No. 16 in the United States – was created using information from the National Center for Education Statistics’ College Navigator database. Schools were selected for the ranking based on the presence of a well-rounded Native American studies curriculum, field-related internships and scholarship options.
The site’s editors highlighted the American Indian Student Association for special recognition.
Here is how the web site described UWM’s programs: “Among its over 180 academic programs is the American Indian Studies (AIS) degree, which covers Native curriculum in areas including anthropology, literature, sociology, history, and more. Students of AIS have access to great resources including the Electa Quinny Institute, a research and services center designed in partnership with the American Indian community. For extracurricular engagement, the American Indian Student Association hosts a range of events.”
