UMW Digital Storytelling Abroad
Spend your spring break exploring the deep riches of Iceland with Dr. Jennifer Polack, Computer Science, and Dr. Lance Gentry, College of Business. Step out of the airport in Reykjavik, Iceland and you will be whisked away to nearby Grindavik. There you will plunge straight into Icelandic culture with a visit to the Blue Lagoon, the famous mountain geothermal spa. You may find yourself running around in a large, open field near the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, jumping in a circle, playing games to keep warm, and staying awake to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. That is only the beginning.
On the program students will stay in local hotels in double or triple-occupancy rooms.
In addition to the program travel during Spring Break, students will enroll in the Spring 2024 course CPSC 106: Digital Storytelling for 3 credits. The course automatically counts as Digital Intensive.
This course satisfies the Beyond the Classroom OR Diverse and Global Perspectives general education requirement by contract with the Faculty Director only.
