NCE 317 Alaska – An Exploration of Alaska Native Culture
The Cross-Cultural Experience is a signature component of Carroll's General Education curriculum, which is characterized by an integrating theme of culture and a requirement for domestic or international cross-cultural experience. This experience challenges students to apply classroom-based examinations of cultural difference and to interact with cultures other than their own in an off-campus setting. Meets Gen Ed two credit CCE requirement.
The purpose of this academic experience is to consider how exploration and environmental resources have impacted and currently impact the cultural heritage of Alaska Native peoples. The classroom preparation grounds students in an understanding of Alaska’s history, physical landscape, natural resource base, and Alaska Native history and heritage. We will study the impacts of Russian, European, and American exploration into the Alaskan landscape and their interactions with the Alaska Native peoples.
The two week May Term immersion itinerary includes cultural activities in Sitka, Juneau, Seward, and Anchorage involving Tlingit/Haida, Sugpiaq/Alutiiq, Unangan/Aleut, and other Alaskan Native groups. You will also have plenty of time to explore the expansive natural beauty of Alaska in Kenai Fiords National Park, Prince William Sound, Mendenhall Glacier, Sitka parks, and more!
