ABOUT THE COURSE
This interdisciplinary course combines study of the language, history, culture, politics and environment of this storied country. No prior knowledge of Spanish is required for enrollment, but students will have the opportunity to develop basic conversational skills through in-class instruction at a language school in Peru and through informal contact with Peruvians. The course will also feature group discussions focusing on the richness of Peru's cultural and environmental heritage in a global context. This four semester hour course partially fulfills Liberal Studies requirements in the areas of Civilization or Science (non-lab). It also satisfies the university's Experiential Learning requirement. Two hours credit from this course can be applied toward a minor in Spanish.
All of these orientation meetings will be from 7:00-8:15 p.m., place to be announced.
