War and Memory Travel Course Spring 2014
History 346Q: War and Memory: the American Civil War Study Tour, 2014
All students entering third and fourth year are eligible to apply. Those accepted for the course will receive a Laurier War and Memory Bursary covering the cost of all travel and accommodation while in Europe, as well as most meals. Students are responsible for air travel to and from Amsterdam, our gateway city plus some meals and incidental expenses.
Because admission to HI346Q involves the provision of a bursary, the application process will be competitive; the committee will consider the applicant’s academic record, as well as other application materials. Applicants must submit a one-page statement of their relevant background and interest in the subject area, and arrange for two confidential letters of reference, at least one of which must be from a Laurier history professor, to be sent directly to the application committee c/o Dr. Darryl Dee, the History Undergraduate Officer. The application process opens on Saturday November 16th 2013.
Course requirements include two research essays, one of which will also serve as the basis of an on-site presentation. Active participation in daily discussions is also a course requirement. Regular classes will be scheduled for participants in the two weeks preceding departure.
