The two key components of the XCC for students are courses and projects.

Boston Public Gardens Project

Great cities contain great stories–and Boston has more than its share. In this course we excavated some of those stories and craft short documentary films that bring them to life. Students brought a deep-time perspective to these stories by linking places and buildings to comparable remains from one of the great cities of the classical past, either Athens, Rome, or Istanbul (ancient Constantinople). Films were produced in collaboration with the City of Boston’s Office of Tourism, Sports, and Entertainment, with final versions made available to the city for promotional and instructional projects.
