We are planning a Traveling Seminar for Spring 2014-
G.I. in Social Science / HSP 155H – Monday & Wednesday 7:00-9:00pm
"We Are Making a New World", will be travelling to Belgium and France this coming Spring - to tour many of the sites we will be studying in the course.
The Great War did not inaugurate trench warfare, but it brought to such fighting an unheralded degree of industrial intensity. The inevitable corollary of this evolution toward perfection was a four-year spasm of destruction, unprecedented in severity and scale - one that visited unspeakable horrors upon millions of soldiers. None emerged unchanged. Taking as its focus the three great traumas of trench warfare manifest on the Western Front – the destruction of human life, of civilization, and of the environment - this course explores the Great War’s impact on individual soldiers and, through them, culture at large. Our approach will be interdisciplinary, encompassing detailed studies of the physical environment, traditional historical documents such as, diaries, letters, memoirs, and trench maps, photographs, film, poetry, painting, novels, and music.
(Not mandatory but highly recommended)
We will leave on or about May 12th and return on or about May 19th, 2014. Our aim will be to experience and discuss the Great War battlefields, museums, and memorials of Ypres (Belgium) and the Somme (France).
In Europe we will be travelling point to point in vans, but will otherwise be on foot most of the time.
Estimated cost per student: $1,800, (excluding transfers to and from DTW and spending money)
* For the trip to go ahead, at least 12 students will need to commit.

Honors at Glasgow University
The Prentiss M Brown College Honors Program now offers a unique study abroad opportunity in conjunction with the University of Glasgow, Scotland. The University of Glasgow was founded in 1451 and is an internationally recognized institution with prestigious programs in the sciences and humanities.
The Honors semester at Glasgow University will allow you to complete an Honors course elective, "The Ideas and Influences of the Scottish Enlightenment: 18th to the 21st Centuries."
The University of Glasgow has created a unique course for our Honors students. Using major figures and ideas from the Scottish Enlightenment, Honors students will see how those ideas continue to be important in intellectual and cultural life in the 21st century. Interdisciplinary perspectives from art/aesthetics, religion, philosophy, politics/economics, and science will inform this course. The institutional model is the traditional Oxbridge model of public lectures and small group seminars. Leading scholars will provide over-arching ideas in the public lectures, which are then further developed through discussion in small group seminars/tutorials.
Take an additional 2-3 courses in your major or minor
The University of Glasgow has both breadth and depth in most undergraduate majors. Science, pre-med, and pre-vet Honors students will have access to a sophisticated range of disciplines and courses. Fine and liberal arts majors as well as business will have an exciting variety of course options. All Honors at Glasgow students will have access to level 3 and some level 4 courses not usually available to other study abroad students.
More unique opportunities for Honors at Glasgow:
- Chance to study at an internationally recognized university
- Be a member of a unique "Honors at Glasgow" program
- Special cultural immersion events for Honors students both inside and outside the classroom
- Possibility of service learning or internships
- Meeting some of the 3,000 other international students from 24 countries around the world
- Meeting, becoming friends with Honors students from our consortium member institutions in the U.S.
