Prerequisites: CORE 120  and at least 30 credits.

Students will learn about public policy, international organizations, legal frameworks, as well as how colonialism, nationalism, and war have impacted cultural heritage while studying abroad in Athens and London. We will examine modern threats to cultural heritage–armed conflict, uncontrolled development, and illicit trade–as well as current debates about ownership, responsibility, and definitions of heritage.
