Croatia Study Abroad
PLAN 6811: Field Studies in Planning and Heritage Conservation is a Maymester study abroad program that offers students the opportunity to earn four credit hours studying various aspects of Croatian architecture, planning, landscape, culture and society in this beautiful and fascinating country. Courses are taught by UGA faculty and use active engagement approaches that will focus on student fieldwork and exploration of historic urban and rural landscapes and allow students to interact with scholars from Croatian universities and research institutes, local government officials, leaders of non-governmental organizations, and citizens from different walks of life.
Students are based out of the University of Zadar in Zadar, a city on Croatia’s Dalmatia Coast known for its Roman and Venetian ruins. Also included in the trip are visits to the cities of Trogir and Split as well as Krka National Park.
The 2018 study abroad program will focus on planning, development, heritage conservation, and cultural landscape issues in a region experiencing strong growth and development and the impact of increasing tourism while trying to preserve its culture and traditions.
