The Camino de Santiago is the traditional pilgrimage route from France across northwestern Spain to Santiago de Compostela, the legendary burial site of St. James. One of the great medieval pilgrimages and the greatest surviving itinerary for medieval monuments and landscapes, it has enjoyed a remarkable revival in recent years, attracting European Union sponsorship, the attention of media stars, and hundreds of thousands of walkers and pilgrims.

In this spring course, two-week study tour, and interdisciplinary capstone, participants will walk the route, and meet each day for lectures and discussion of the medieval and pre-modern monuments along the route. The group will meet periodically during the spring 2013 semester to discuss reading assignments, make presentations and prepare for the walk.  An essay is required at the end of the course.

Fordham College students may gain four credits for this course and may apply the credits earned for this course (MVST 4998) to meet the core interdisciplinary capstone requirement, as a free elective (no matter what their major), or toward majors/minors in Medieval Studies, History, Latin American and Latino Studies, and American Catholic Studies.

Eligibility requires that students be full-time and registered during the spring 2013 semester. Participation in this study tour can then be added to their schedules for a total not exceeding 18 credits without further tuition charges.
