San Francisco State University, a large institution in the heart of the city, is committed to combining strong academics with opportunities for personal development. Among the College’s 118 majors is the Bachelor of Arts degree in American Indian Studies (AIS). The primary scope of this degree is to give students an understanding of the complex history, social issues, and politics of the Native American people. Outside of the classroom, students on the AIS track have the chance to work with local community groups. One of these groups is the American Indian Child Resource Center (AICRC), a respected nonprofit that serves Native families in need.
