This course is a study and travel experience of the Holy Lands (the region around and including modern Israel), one of the most significant places in both the ancient and contemporary worlds. As the sacred lands for three major religious traditions, this region has been the setting for defining events in religious history, not to mention the central context for much of what is described in the Bible. This course includes a study of the region, geography, and culture of the Holy Lands (both past and present), with attention to how such experience may contribute to the interpretation of biblical texts. Attention will also be given to students' interaction with different cultures and peoples of the region. Fulfills a General Education Cultural Experience (CE) requirement. Fee: Additional fee required.
