A UNIVERSITY EDUCATION is less a matter of simply taking courses than of demonstrating you are an educated person. Among other qualities, it means you know how to carry yourself, regardless of what the world throws at you. Foreign study is a traditional indicator of educational attainment—not to mention intellectual sophistication and social refinement—because its value is proven. And now the door is opened to you, through a condensed, cost-controlled program accessible to all UWA students.

CultureWHAT IS CIVILIZATION, AND HOW DOES IT HAPPEN? Over the last 10,000 years and around the world, very different cultures experienced a similar set of changes that led to population growth, complex government, organized religion, and, ultimately, our modern national identities. And it's all tied to food. When Ireland's prehistoric peoples abandoned hunting and gathering for farming and a settled village life nearly 7,000 years ago, they set into motion an irreversible process of cultural change. We will see the monumental results when we explore the landscapes of Cavan Burren (below right), and the passage graves at Loughcrew FRANKIE MALVEO, JR. Accounting Tuscaloosa, Alabama Tullygobbin's Tomb, Cavan Burren National Park Culture(below left), where ancient power and transformative beliefs are writ large in stone and earth. Far from being an extinct ancient practice, civilizations, including the United States, are still engaged in the negotiation of national identity and culture, though our monuments take many forms.
