Primary Instructor:


This course focuses on recent trends or developments in the field of Native American Studies. Topics and credit hours vary from section to section and semester to semester; but students will generally be given an upper-level seminar/lecture course that delves deeply into recent scholarly research in the humanities or the social sciences. Unlike 310 or 311, which are comparative, 301 centers on a specific academic field to organize course content. Materials in these classes, in other words, have a preponderance in literature, arts, history, performance studies, sociology, political science, or anthropology. The subject of the course, however, might be broadly conceived to cover multiple Native American groups or more narrowly concentrated on just one group. Students should expect reading and writing assignments appropriate for a junior or senior level humanities/social science course.

Course Requirements:

Will vary with topic and credit hours. In general, for a 3-credit 300- level classes, American Culture expects 75-100 pages of reading per week and minimally 12-18 pages of writing outside class. Students might also do in-class exams and quizzes; participate in group discussion; and work in groups on projects.

Intended Audience:

Upperclass standing

Class Format:

Variable (lecture/dicussion or seminar)
