HU 219 Global Studies through International Travel – France - Hillery Haney
This international travel course will provide an in‐depth study of the French culture, civilization, art, history and language.

We will come into contact with French culture through art, history and language from the north to the south of France in Paris and Provence. This experience is intended to promote interdisciplinary study and a broader understanding of the multicultural world in which we live through the study of language, art, culture, history, religion, economy and travel.
