CSJ’s Division of Arts & Sciences is offering a new Native American Studies class as part of the college’s Spring 2019 course schedule.
The course, Introduction to Native American Studies, taught by Professor Kurt Fetter, will include lecture, film, discussion, and other media designed to introduce students to Native American history, culture, and social issues from the colonial period to present-day. Fetter is a member of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe of Akwesasne, New York, and serves as the Commissioner and Chair of Judicial Oversight for the tribe.
“Students will gain insight into the American Indian’s extraordinary story of survival,” says Professor Fetter. “While the course is open to any student who wants to learn more about Native American issues, it may be of particular interest to Native American students who are interested in learning more about their own tribal heritage.”
The class will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:45 to 9:15pm. It satisfies an English elective, history elective, or general elective.
Individuals may audit the course for half the usual tuition price, and senior citizens receive an additional discount.
