Our Degrees

The tribal governance program provides skills and knowledge needed for positions within tribal, local, and community governments and organizations across Alaska. In response to the broad variety of job-related skills needed by tribal leaders, councils, administrators, and staff, the tribal governance certificate and A.A.S. degree programs are designed to allow students to tailor their education for specific employment-related skills.

The tribal g
overnance program provides students with fundamental knowledge of tribal governance, law, policy, and management through academic and hands-on education and training in subject areas important to tribal governments. Students work closely with their academic advisor to choose courses in one or more areas of study that target their employment needs.
