In the summer of 2013, UNC will offer its second Cherokee Study Abroad Program, an innovative five-week experience. Students will explore Cherokee history, language, and culture in Western North Carolina, along the Trail of Tears, and in northeastern Oklahoma.
AIS is more than a program--it is a community of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and community members who come together to explore American Indian experiences and issues across disciplines.
Dr. Theda Perdue, Emeritus Professor of History and American Studies
The American Indian Studies program helped me gain a greater appreciation for my heritage and people. . . . The encouragement, support and commitment that faculty members have offered to me is unparalleled.
