Taught by the world’s leading experts in Indigenous law and governance, the Certificate is not a university degree, but rather a more flexible, practical, and cost effective way for people who work with and for Native nations to acquire cutting edge information that will be of immediate practical use.
A wide range of class options are available and are designed to accommodate both full-time and part-time students.
* some courses meet for a full semester

Two sets of intensive short courses are offered each year: the January in Tucson courses and the June in Montana courses.
Spend January in Tucson and earn up to 7 credits toward the Certificate! The Certificate program is structured to encourage students to spend 1-3 weeks in Tucson in January. Seven courses are offered over the three week period, giving students an opportunity to network with the faculty, as well as with other students pursuing the Certificate.
