Indigenous Governance (MPS) 

Program Description

The Indigenous Governance Programs consist of three programmatic offerings — a Continuing Education Certificate, a Graduate Certificate, and a Masters of Professional Studies (MPS). Between these three course options, anyone interested in learning more about Indigenous governance from a world renown faculty is able to do so. Specifically, the Continuing Education option is designed to allow any individual interested in governance issues to take a class taught by experts in the field regardless of past education and work experiences. Individuals interested in the Graduate Certificate or MPS programs must have a Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) and must meet the University of Arizona’s admission criteria.

The MPS program is designed for individuals seeking a more in depth academic understanding of Indigenous governance globally, and what it means to rebuild Indigenous societies.

We put students at the center by providing an intensive, individualized learning experience that trains ethical and effective lawyers and leaders.
