PRYOR, Okla. – Beginning in the spring semester, Rogers State University will offer Cherokee language courses on its Pryor campus.
Cherokee I will begin in January at the start of the spring 2009 semester and Cherokee II will be offered in the fall. The university plans to continue the course rotation each year. The Cherokee language courses are open to both degree-seeking and non-degree-seeking students. Students can take the course as part of the minor in Native American Studies or to fulfill a general education requirement.
“We are located in the Cherokee Nation, so it is only natural that we offer Cherokee language classes,” said Dr. Hugh Foley, associate professor and coordinator of Native American Studies at RSU. “This is part of our continued development of American Indian Studies at RSU.”
