Study Away – Arizona: Borderlands and Canyons

Landscapes are much more than what meets the eye. They hold histories and identities even while leaders debate over whether they should be preserved, consumed, or fenced. We will witness these landscapes for ourselves by walking along the borderlands, engaging in workshops with migrants and community leaders, and beholding the beauty of the Grand Canyon. Dr. Ashley Zampogna-Krug and Professor Elana Maloney will be offering History and English courses as part of this trip. If you believe college research can be hands-on, fun, and inspiring, come to an information session about our faculty-led program to Arizona in summer 2024.
