At home or abroad, Jan Term offers fresh perspectives

September 16, 2011

When Jan Term registration opens Sept. 26, McDaniel students will find a diverse selection of opportunities to explore uncommon topics through 16 study tours in the U.S. and abroad as well as lectures and fitness classes on campus.

After a walk around the Sept. 20 Study Abroad fair, Biology majors may opt to step out of their element to explore the legend of Dracula on his home turf in Romania, Computer Science students may go international at McDaniel Europe in Budapest, and Economics majors may spend Jan Term studying Italy through the camera lens.

New to the Jan Term study tour list this year are trips to Hawaii and Argentina. The trip to Hawaii, team taught by English lecturer Jennie Walker and Biology Professor Esther Iglich, will focus on understanding the culture, history and ecology of the islands through an ecojustice perspective.

“Team-teaching really goes along with my philosophy of environmental studies as a whole – that at its best, environmental study is interdisciplinary,” Walker says. “Think of it this way – as ecology looks at relationships between living things, this course looks at ecojustice from the connections between history, culture, and ecology (in Hawaii).”

With 43 class offerings in all, students who stay on campus have a variety of choices that include such topics as the science of cooking, presidential scandals, police and perpetrators, coping with stress, religions and criminal justice and “Chronicles of Narnia.”

See the Archway for a complete listing of Jan Term courses.
