GNST 251: Cross-Cultural Experience, B. Jones - 1 credit hour

  • This course will explore the geographical locations the group will visit on the trip: Anchorage (the State’s Capitol and rich Native Alaskan Heritage), Barrow (Utqiagvik – a small North Slope community made up of open tundra, large lagoons, and a number of lakes in the vicinity, and the Arctic Ocean is less than 3 km northwest of the community), and the Kenai Peninsula (a large peninsula jutting form the coast of Southcentral Alaska and the home of the Kenaitze Indian Tribe).
  • Climate, languages, cultural aspects, spirituality & religions, and economic & political systems will be explored.
  • Healthcare systems in Alaska will be studied and the cultural factors of influence, and access to healthcare through the Indian Health Services (IHS) delivery system and other Native American Healthcare Centers, serving both Northern to Southern Alaskan Indian Tribes.
  • There will be assigned readings, lecture/discussion, assigned writing, and guest speakers during the trip on cultural aspects of Alaskan heritage.
  • There will be immersion in the culture, including visiting Inupiat Villages in the north, participating with local churches and interacting pastors and their congregations, enjoying several national parks for recreation, and a train ride to view Mount Denali to view the beautiful landscape of the State of Alaska.
  • We are hoping to have “SMORES IN THE TUNDRA” with Native Americans.
