WR 355 - Travel Writing

(3.00 cr.)

Students explore the prose genre of travel writing while living and studying abroad. They read in the canon of contemporary and traditional travel literature—newspaper and magazine articles, short pieces, literary essays, and nonfiction books. Inspired and informed by their adventures in the here and now of travel abroad, they write a weekly travel blog and two major essays. Concentrating on their host city, students also produce a research project ("My City Quest") that reflects on their experience and what it is like to live and study in another country, as well as on the culture, traditions, and people of their study abroad destination. Open to all majors as a general elective.

Restrictions: Restricted to Loyola students studying abroad.
