Students, if you haven’t even given a thought to your summer plans, here’s something to take under advisement: you can earn a half-unit of credit while experiencing the culture of Granada, Spain and Morocco. This one-time-only study abroad trip will take place May 13 through May 25, 2012, says organizer Gabriela Cerghedean, adjunct assistant professor of modern languages and literatures. The deadline to apply is Saturday (Feb. 25).
The program will include home-stays and hostels, academic lectures, visits to historic sites representative of Muslim, Jewish, and Christian cultures, discussion on present-day issues in Spain and Morocco (such as immigration and the role of women in society), and the development of individual projects, all designed to provide first-hand insights into the lived realities of the different social/religious groups who inhabited Medieval Iberia.
Prerequisite? You must have completed four semesters of Spanish. See the PDF flyer on the right for more detailed information, or email Cerghedean at email@example.com.
