  • Overview

    In this course we will study the geography, history, culture, civilization, arts, politics, cuisine and peoples that have contributed to the development and formation of SPAIN. While my study notes and other handouts will form the basic historical foundation of the course as far as readings are concerned, the class will benefit from numerous field work outings in Valencia, and we will also make good use of audio-visual materials when appropriate.

    One of the primary objectives of our study of Spain will be to experience the country up close and personal; that is, through real life experiences. The Program will travel to some high stimulating places during your stay, while you will also visit some very important historical sites here in Valencia. The primary Program trip(s) and corresponding activites of said trip(s) are mandatory and count as regular class time. The student will also be expected and required to conduct both group and individual field work in Valencia. No doubt many of you will also take side trips to other places as well. Take advantage of your stay here! Your experiences, reflections and cultural analysis will be a valuable source of class conversation.
