Honors Study Abroad

Each year the Honors Program runs a Study-Abroad opportunity, only available to members of the program. In the last few years students have traveled to Paris, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Japan, and China.  This spring they will be heading Cuba. The Honors Study Abroad trip takes place each year over Spring Break and the trip counts as a three credit course in the Honors Program. 

Geography of the Developing World (GEG 103) / Cuba Study Abroad Trip

Professor Veronica Mormino (3 credits)

Geography of the developing world examines the regions of the world conventionally called “developing” or “emerging,” including the spatial patterns of physical and cultural elements that impart unique identities within these regions using both digital and traditional maps to explore complex geopolitical relations and/or international conflicts among developing regions of the world.  This course covers multiple regions but will focus more on Latin America and Cuba specifically, as students will spend 8 days in Cuba as part of the experience of the course. (This class satisfied 3 credits of the social science general education requirement)

Meeting Times: Tuesdays 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
