Alaska Native Studies Academic Programs

Students can now earn an Occupational Endorsement Certificate (OEC) in Alutiiq Language or Minor in Alaska Native Studies. These programs are ideal for individuals working in language programs, teachers, and employees in tribes, Native organizations and Native corporations.

The Title III Alutiiq Studies and Student Support Project has established an Alutiiq Studies program at Kodiak College. This 6-year project (Fall 2011- 2017) is developing new courses in Alutiiq language and culture, most of which are available by distance delivery (e-learning).

 In addition to new academic offerings, the project enhances the support network available to Native students through advocacy, mentorship, and learning communities. The campus is becoming more conducive to Alutiiq culture, through creation of culturally-relevant signage, learning and gathering spaces, and training of faculty and staff in Alutiiq culture and education issues.
