Course Description:
Everyone has a story to tell, and in this class students will develop their own stories as they relate to the culture of Great Britain by creating audio and video projects on location. We will examine digital media as a tool for seeing, exploring, and expressing cultural identity. We will be visiting ancient sites such as Windsor Castle, Westminster Abbey, and the Tower of London, as well as taking day trips along the River Thames and to Oxford to meet with other students to discuss similarities and differences in American and British college culture. You’re invited to take advantage of this opportunity to develop your cultural competency and sensitivity in the process of documenting intercultural stories in London.

Prerequisites:
None

Physical Activity Requirements:
On average: 3 to 5 miles of walking. Wear real shoes - the city streets of London are rugged in and of themselves; flip-flops thin sandals or ballet flatsare not allowed on field trip events. We will spend time out in the weather not just in moving from venue to venue. Some of our activities take place outside and in whatever weather is happening that day. July in London is often sunny and even hot but youll still need to bring an umbrella with you.
