Tribal Governance

Certificate; A.A.S. Degree

The tribal governance program teaches the job-related skills and knowledge needed for positions within tribal and local governments and other organizations in rural Alaska. In response to the broad variety of job-related skills needed by tribal councils, administrators and staff, the tribal management certificate and A.A.S. degree programs are designed to allow students to tailor their education for specific employment-related skills. Students perform specific tasks, learn basic management rationale and explore issues in tribal government. The tribal governance program provides students with fundamental knowledge of tribal governance and finance as well as hands-on education and training in subject areas important to tribal governments. Students work closely with their academic advisor to choose courses in one or more areas of study that target their employment needs.

Students entering either the certificate or A.A.S. degree program will meet with a faculty advisor to discuss program content, requirements and planning.
