Course Description:
Designed for students who want to expand their cultural horizons while improving their media storytelling, this class takes you to sites of historical and cultural importance in England and Scotland where your imagination will be inspired to produce documentary projects. Paired with a history of geology class, this course will combine visits to places of geological significance with field trips to such historic sites as London’s Westminster Abbey, Edinburgh Castle, and the Scottish Highlands. We’ll interact with Britons to make cross-cultural comparisons and reflect on how foreign travel provides new perspectives on our own culture – and then create documentaries that illustrate those themes.
