In Spanish 412 at IUS, we study the ancient Mayan civilization represented by the ruins of Palenque (seen at left), as well as those of Copan (below, left) and  Tikal (below, right).  We go on to study the Conquest of Latin America by the Spaniards, their colonization of the New World and the Republics which eventually gained their independence from Spain.
