B.A. Degree

The Yup’ik language and culture, or Yupiit Nakmiin Qaneryaraat Piciryaraat-llu, program strives to reinforce a Yup’ik identity that is centrally dependent on the language and culture, prepares the student for success in the world, and leads to acceptance at home. The program is based on the philosophy that a strong command of the Yup’ik language leads to a complete understanding of the Yup’ik way of life, the world around us, and our place in it.

Depending on interest, students in the program are encouraged to complete a minor in education or Alaska Native and rural development.
