Graduate Program

Graduate Program in Indigenous Governance

Students earn a majority of credits during the Indigenous Governance Program's annual January in Tucson, 3 weeks of accelerated 3-day courses offered on campus.

Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Indigenous Governance


Designed with working professionals in mind, our MPS combines accelerated on-campus classes with a diverse menu of online courses and externship credits that can be earned in a student's home community. The 30-credit hybrid in-person and online MPS degree can be completed within one year. By combining the immersive in-person January in Tucson experience with a robust online class curriculum, the MPS gives students flexibility to create their own specialized courses of study.

Graduate Certificate (GC) in Indigenous Governance


A certificate program requires the completion of a core curriculum, but also offers students the ability to take elective courses of their choosing. The GC may be completed in as few as two January in Tucson sessions, but is flexibly designed to allow students to complete the requirements over several years.

Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) required.

Our Graduate Program is accredited through the University of Arizona’s James E.Rogers College of Law.
