AU Scholars | Spring 2017 Research Courses

Cultural Studies in Wales

Course Time: W 8:10 AM to 11:00 AM 

Description: Students in this course will work in small groups to identify and conduct research on a topic related to Welch culture.  Students will travel to Aberystwyth, Wales over spring break to conduct their research projects, with the potential to work in collaboration faculty and students at Aberystwyth University. One possible research topic could be the effects that climate change will have on the starling murmuration at the Aber pier which happens every year in March. Check out a video of the Starling Murmuration here!  Research skills developed through this course will depend on the type of research, but could include survey development, interviews, basic videography techniques, and documentary skills.

Course fee: $2,350
