Academic Programs

Bemidji State University is becoming more and more Indigenous focused not only with newer majors but throughout the entire campus. We all know that representation in Indian Country matters especially for our young scholars, so we are very excited about these programs that have an amazing Indigenous focus!

One of the cool things about BSU is that you have to complete what are called Liberal Education Requirements, every student must complete 42 credits in 11 specific categories, in addition to your core major credits. Luckily some overlap and count both for your major and for your Liberal Education requirements! This leaves many options to make ANY major have an Indigenous focus! For advisement and help visit the American Indian Resource Center and ask for Ann Humphrey, or visit BSU Advising Success Center.

Be sure to look at all the Majors and think about your dream job. If you need a helpful ear to help you choose a major or explore them a little. Contact Ann Humphrey at the AIRC, or the Advising Success Center or Career Services! We are all here to help you succeed at BSU!
