Prof. Adolfo Cisneros, Department of World Languages and Cultures

This course exposes students to Spanish culture with a two-week stay in Spain. The course will study primarily the development of the Spanish transition to democracy after forty years of dictatorship, and different aspects of the contemporary Spanish civilization and culture. To achieve this goal students will learn about Spanish history, politics, culture and social changes. Students will also visit numerous museums, churches, archeological and historical sites, as well as cultural and artistic centers. Under FLS 306 Spain Interim: A Cultural and Historical Perspective, the course site will change between major cities such as: Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, Seville, Cordoba, Bilbao, San Sebastian, etc. Topics may vary each time the course is offered. Students can retake this course for additional credit as long as the content of the course has changed. Prerequisites:  FLS 303 and FLS 304 or consent of instructor

--ENG 302  Travel Writing (Gen Ed C2, BCC W2)         HURRY  -  ONLY ONE SEAT LEFT!

Dr. Kevin Swafford

This writing course will dovetail perfectly with your travels. In addition to class writing workshops, you will take notes on your experiences and turn those into daily journal entries that you will keep in a portfolio, accompanied perhaps by photos, memorabilia, and other fascinating travel miscellanea. Along with an extensive journal assignment, you will write two formal essays. All of your writing will focus on describing, narrating, and analyzing the ways in which daily interaction with a new culture can affect and change you, the traveler. Alumni of the Travel Writing class taught abroad comment that it helped them process and remember even the smallest details of their overseas experience.
