Cultural History Travel Study

The cultural history course combines visits to major cultural and historical sites with academic study of the geography, history, art, literature, politics, and religion of the country, region, or continent. The interdisciplinary course is taught by a team of two to four faculty and developed around a history core (HIST 335, 3 units). This course meets a general studies elective requirement for Heritage and Institutions. Each student, in collaboration with the program moderator and an appropriate faculty mentor, may choose to develop an intensive focus upon the art, architecture, history, literature, politics, or religion of the designated country or region, and earn an additional 3 units. This travel study program includes one to two weeks of campus classes followed by two weeks of travel.
