INT 2015 - The Collapse of a Civilization

4 cr
This interdisciplinary course examines the rise and fall of the Mayan civilization of Central America. We study the environment, history, and science of the Maya, paying particular attention to how they interacted with their natural world. We then travel to the mountains of Belize to explore the setting where the Maya once thrived. Upon our return we process what we have learned with an eye towards understanding contemporary sustainability issues.
This course fulfills the World Views Frame of Reference.
Fee: Dependent on current travel costs; approximately $2000.
