The Southwest Studies features an 18n unit course study designed to complement a student's major course of study. It includes:

- SWS 250 (3 units) an introductory interdisciplinary course which brings together faculty from varied disciplines to explore the physical, sociocultural, and humanities.

- Electives (12 units) Four courses from one of three strands: physical; environments; sociocultural and historical environment; or humanities; or an interdisciplinary approach which involves a combination of all three.

- Senior Capstone (3 units) this course presents the student with options for community-based experience with local agencies or projects OR research based experience with NAU Cline Library Special Collections, the Museum of Northern Arizona, or other local or regional archives, museums, or data-bases.

Our key objective is to encourage students to recognize, appreciate, and enhance their personal and professional ties and potential contributions to the region, as well as to understand the region's global connections.
