Course Description: The “Miami in Miami” (MIA) seminar examines the historical, social, and cultural identity of Miami. Through field research, students will explore the Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How of the city and its surroundings. The course expands beyond the four walls of a traditional university setting, and uses Miami itself as its classroom. We walk, talk, and eat our way through the streets and history of Miami, posing questions and searching for answers. By exploring the myth and reality of Miami, this FIU Honors College seminar formulates an understanding of the core of this vibrant and diverse city.
