Literatures and Cultures of the American West with Phil Snyder

Dr. Phil Snyder brings words to life as he leads students into the landscapes and cultures that make up the great American West. In his Literature and Cultures of the American West course, Dr. Snyder emphasizes experience as a way of learning; students go on field trips to the places they study in textbooks to truly understand what they are learning.

Hike across Arches National Park and get in the saddle in Salem as the class makes an effort to connect with the words and heritage of the land around them.
