My History of Art class was by far one of my favorite classes I have ever taken! Our professor was constantly making sure we were comfortable with the material and always including us in the lessons, instead of just lecturing! It was also great because I could apply the classroom lessons to the real art I would see as I traveled around Spain.
This unique track will closely examine the profound impact of the Islamic culture on Granada and southern Spain. Students will enroll in both Spanish and Arabic language courses while completing elective coursework in Islamic culture and a personalized research project under the instruction of Professor Aurelio Ríos Rojas. Excursions with a special focus on Islamic culture will round out the semester. Students will earn 15 credit hours.
Excursions will include the Morocco Exchange and trips to Cordoba, Seville and Ronda with an emphasis on Islamic culture and history.
