HIST 440 History Study Abroad

Faculty members lead students to another country where they visit a variety of historical and cultural sites. Professors will use physical sites - museums, houses of worship, seats of power, people's plazas, residential streets and neighborhoods, among many others - as their classrooms and lecture halls. Places become the textbook and the primary sources for students to "read" and interpret. History Study Abroad provides an opportunity for students to connect historical content with lived experience. Check with the History Department for information about the specific location being offered.
