Camino banner 

The UNF Dept. of History and the Dept. of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Welfare are participating in two courses being taught in Spain this summer: Medieval Pilgrimage and the Camino de Santiago and Modern Pilgrimage Field Research. We hope you will follow us as we travel through five culturally distinct regions of northern Spain. Students will explore medieval and contemporary pilgrimage landscapes through readings, images, and direct participation in the pilgrimage to Compostela. Using a variety of media, students will engage in digital storytelling, documenting the entire journey, including the final 73-mile walk to the shrine of St. James.

Department of History: Our Mission

Our mission is to graduate a liberally educated person who can view the world with a historical perspective, appreciate the traditions of various cultures, understand the role of change and continuity, and have interests encompassing humanities, social sciences, fine arts, and natural sciences. The history graduate should leave UNF with the ability to evaluate the world critically and with an understanding that education is a never-ending process.  

Studying history also helps students learn to:

 

• Organize and interpret historical evidence
• Work with archives 
• Write effectively
• Communicate verbally
• Present historical events for the public
