Immerse Yourself in a Global Experience

This year's theme is Castles! An Interdisciplinary Study. For more than a thousand years, castles have dotted the European landscape and continue to attract millions of visitors yearly. This Honors College course will spotlight notable castles in England and Germany to explore castles from many disciplinary perspectives. What roles did castles play during various historical moments? How might castle architecture give us insight into such issues as public health, economics, sociology and psychology? How did castles shape specific narratives about art, literature, music … and even love itself? What can castles teach us about business and marketing challenges today? How did castles serve an ideological function in the past, and how do they continue to do so in our own time? You will be responsible for leading mini-lessons during our voyage, keeping a travel journal, and completing a final project following the trip.
