The course is appropriate for educators, graduate students, and those interested in Native American art and culture.
The course, titled "American Indian Art Survey" (NAS 551) runs May 17 through Aug. 6, 2010 and is taught entirely online.
The MSU instructor is Ceilon Aspensen, who also teaches art and journalism in Baltimore. She has combined her unique interests in art, education and Native American studies to create the course.
Students will examine Native American artworks and the political, cosmological, religious and spiritual values of the cultural groups that created them.
To enroll in the course, students must have completed a bachelor's degree, but do not need to be currently enrolled in an MSU graduate degree program. Students who complete the course will earn three graduate credits from MSU.
