"My St. Mary's Project was truly the culminating experience for my undergraduate years. The process brought me full circle; I was able to take a piece of literature I had read in my very first semester and keep discussing and applying theory to it in my last. My SMP proved to me that I could sustain great ideas and discipline myself, even when I was discouraged. Working so closely with my SMP mentor, Christine Adams, was really valuable, offering a one-on-one environment that I had never had with my regular classes. I came away from my project knowing more about my topic than I thought I ever would -- and I still love it!"
History Study Tours
History Department Faculty (together with faculty members from other departments) offer a variety of Study Tour opportunities for St. Mary's students. These are exciting Summer opportunities to experience history outside of the classroom, and explore the ways in which the past and the present inform each other.
Upcoming Study Tours:
Andean Studies Tour to Peru, May 2013 (Dr. Adriana Brodsky, Dr. Cristin Cash, and Billy Friebele)
Every other summer, this Study Tour travels with a group of students to the Andes to explore the ancient culture of the Inca civilization and learn how Inca culture impacts the region today. Students have the opportunity to earn 4-credit hours towards either History, Art History, or LAS, among others. The Study tour is based in Cusco, where students stay with a Peruvian family, and attend Quechua classes, weaving workshops, and visit historic Inca sites (like Pisac and Machu Picchu).
