Rose State College offers Native American program

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Published: May 28, 2014

MIDWEST CITY — A new degree at Rose State College will offer students the opportunity to study the Native American experience.

Program Director Dr. S. Matthew DeSpain said the Native American Studies program is intended for both American Indians and non-Indians alike and will increase graduates’ marketability for jobs in the state.

In the future the program will include a study abroad to Hawaii as comparative indigenous studies and also internships with local tribes and affiliated institutions.

Officials said the program is part of a broader outreach by Rose State to Native Americans, which includes transfer agreements with the University of Oklahoma, degree options and an annual Powwow.

Officials say it’s all designed to bring in focus Oklahoma’s native heritage and in step with the needs of American Indians in the state.
