Program Description:
MVST 4998 Medieval Spain
 David Myers Spain

(You must be enrolled in the course MVST 4998 for the Spring 2016 semester in order to participate in this study tour.)

The Camino de Santiago is the traditional pilgrimage route from France across northwestern Spain to Santiago de Compostela, the legendary burial site of St. James. One of the great medieval pilgrimages and the greatest surviving itinerary for medieval monuments and landscapes, it has enjoyed a remarkable revival in recent years, attracting European Union sponsorship, the attention of media stars, and hundreds of thousands of walkers and pilgrims. This spring course features a two-week study tour and interdisciplinary capstone in which students will walk the León to Santiago route and meet each day for lectures and discussion of the medieval and pre-modern monuments along the route. The group will meet periodically during the spring semester to discuss reading assignments, make presentations and prepare for the walk.

What impact has your study abroad experience had on your life and studies?
It has broadened my knowledge of Spanish culture, allowed me to experience a small flavor of medieval life, and forced me to push myself when I didn't think I could.
