As of fall 2021, the World Languages, Literatures & Cultures department now offers courses in the Cherokee language.

Majors from closely related departments were well represented — anthropology, history, languages, English and sociology. The initial Cherokee I class met its maximum enrollment of 15 students and is now regularly offered in fall semester.

Currently, there are four levels of Cherokee offered: Cherokee I-IV. See the below course information on each level.
