World Civilization in Spain & Morocco

People Riding Camels on Sand

Take a World Civilization course abroad and journey through the western Mediterranean beginning in Europe and ending in Africa.

Beginning in Madrid, Spain and traveling south, you'll experience the amazing cities and natural landscape of Al Andalusia---sun drenched southern Spain. You'll then embark on a ferry from the southern tip of Spain, sailing across the blue Mediterranean sea, and landing in Tangier, Morocco. For the rest of your time abroad, you'll experience the diversity of Islamic North Africa in Tangier, Chefchouen and Fes.  

Enjoy the opportunity to look for evidence of cultural syncretism and transculturation---the ways in which the diverse cultures of the Western Mediterranean interacted and changed one another---in the past and today. This historical and cultural interaction is visible in the art, architecture, city planning, food, dance and music.

Professor Gallo will ensure you have a chance to see and do it all!

Sevin teaches world history through the lens of food for the Honors Program. Her classes meet at Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food, NWACC's new culinary school, and at local restaurants. In these non-traditional environments, students examine different historical processes while considering how food systems and food culture shape the human experience.

Sevin has a Ph.D. in Modern Middle East/World history from the University of Akron in Ohio. Her research focuses on gender, nationalism, popular culture, and state-formation in the Kurdish regions of the Middle East---particularly Turkey. She studied electronic media and journalism at the University of Cincinnati as an undergraduate. She transferred to Kent State University, and earned a B.A. and M.A. in European history. In addition to teaching world history, Sevin works as the Global Studies degree coordinator at NWACC, and she leads a study abroad program in Greece.

NWACC makes studying abroad accessible to students through financial aid, scholarships, payment plans and other options. Learn more about various financial options and accessing the payment portal.
