Program Description:
Wyatt Exploration Program
This is a closed program. You must be pre-selected in order to participate

Each year, the Wyatt Exploration Program will provide a unique and exciting opportunity for students and faculty to join together in the intellectual exploration of the human past. Organized by the Department of History with financial support from the Wyatt Endowment, the program focuses on the history and culture of a specific place or on a particular historical topic.
2016-2017 Expedition:
Germany: Land of Peaks and Valleys

Please note that you cannot apply to this program unless you have been identified and selected by the History Department. 

For many Americans, their knowledge of German history is limited to Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich. This twelve year period was indisputably the darkest chapter in Germany’s long history and also one of the darkest in world history. As historians and history students, we must explore and seek to understand how Hitler and the Holocaust could happen. But we also must not allow the long history of the German people to be reduced to the tragic events of the 1930s and 1940s. The theme of this years’ Wyatt Exploration Program is “Germany: Land of Peaks and Valleys.” Focusing geographically on the southern state of Bavaria, the series of on-campus events and the culminating trip to Germany will explore some of the many peaks and valleys of German history, stretching from the late Roman Empire up through Bavaria’s post-WWII reinvention as a center of high-tech industry.
