Interested in learning more about issues facing Native America today? Federal Indian Law and Policy? Or Protecting Cultural Property?
Spring Quarter for online UCLA extension classes are starting soon (March 30th). The sign up process is very easy AND there is a easy scholarship to sign up for too so don’t let those dollar signs intimidate you. I cannot recommend these classes enough.You can take 1 class at a time or two at once. There are small weekly assignments that are usually class discussions, three short papers, and a final paper.
They do require a lot of reading and writing but you will get so much out of it. You get to virtually meet different Native people from all walks of life from around the US and sometimes other countries. In each class, you get up-to-date on current pressing issues facing Indian Country, how to think critically about them, and be informed!
