Barrett in Morocco and Portugal: The Crossroads of Civilization

In this Barrett faculty-led study abroad, students will visit two storied cultures at the crossroads of the European and African, Christian and Islamic, and Mediterranean and Atlantic, worlds: Portugal and Morocco. As we explore the cities and landscapes of these remarkable locales, we will study the transnational migration of immigrants and expatriates that have made these countries some of the most cosmopolitan in the world. Program activities will include hiking to historic mosques, wandering through labyrinthine souks, lounging on beaches on the Strait of Gibraltar, cooking tagines, touring 8th century castles, and visiting the historic Algarve region.
