This fall class begins in October and runs until March, studying the history, politics, economics, and artistic heritage of Dominica. It is not intended for tourists, but rather for individuals with a sincere interest in learning about and interacting with people and events in another culture. In January, we plan to travel to the Capitol, Roseau, and throughout Dominica during our visit.

In the event that travel does not proceed as planned, this course will be offered in person with interactive virtual experiences. AUC designations will remain in place, and a significantly reduced course fee will apply. 

Open to sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students
