This Study Tour will acquaint students with the historical and cultural links between Spain and Morocco. In Morocco, we will likewise focus on historical periods (Berber, Saadi, Alaouite Dynasties) as we visit Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Fes, and Marrakech. This will be a twelve-day Study Tour. In Spain, we will visit the major cities of what was Al-Andalus or Muslim Spain (711-1492), focusing on the main historical periods (Umayyad Dynasty, Taifa Kingdoms, Nasrid Dynasty) and the cities that are most representative of these periods (Córdoba, Sevilla, Granada, and Málaga). Each day we will have a tour led by a local guide or the professor. There will also be some free time for students to explore on their own.
