About the Program
This study tour immerses students in Andean culture in a way that reflects the cross-disciplinary nature of Latin American Studies. The itinerary and coursework introduce the Andean region through multiple disciplinary lenses, including art history, history, studio art, environmental studies, museum studies, political science, archaeology and literature.
The tour explores a variety of locations from the ancient cities of the Inca, to the colonial city of Cusco, to contemporary villages in Chinchero. Overall, the study tour provides students with an overview of Andean culture in relation to both natural and built environments, as well as meaningful interaction with the history and people of the Andes from its ancient roots through the Colonial period and into the present.
Students may receive four-credit upper-division credits for this course in Art History, History, Latin American Studies and others. Credit may be given in other disciplines with consent of the Department Chair or CDSA coordinator. This course fulfills the ELAW requirement.
