We will seek to understand the culture, geography, government, and history of the country or region, emphasizing what we will experience on the trip in June. As a class, we will study the historical significance of the travel sites and seek to understand how the country/region s history and culture are interwoven into our own history and culture as Americans. Our goal is to analyze each country/region s engagement with globalization, particularly issues of geography, government, and culture. The major themes of the class are thus the geographical, governmental, social, and cultural connections between various countries/regions and ourselves. Because the course culminates in the trip to the selected country/region, it is only open to current students already participating in the trip. The country/region changes each year; more information is available from the Social Studies departments. Tuition: $ Grades Offered: Prerequisite: None Session: Semester 1 only 5
