Have you ever wanted to immerse yourself in the study of a Native American people? Join us on Cherokee Study Abroad! Over five weeks you’ll travel from North Carolina to Oklahoma with Cherokee professors studying culture, history, and the Cherokee language. You’ll spend two weeks of instruction with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in western North Carolina, visit multiple sites along the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail, and spend an additional two weeks among the Cherokees of northeastern Oklahoma. An innovative digital humanities course, Cherokee Study Abroad will have its own interactive website that you will use to post your course blog, reflections, and photos so that others may follow your physical and intellectual journey through Cherokee country.
