Study-Abroad Program Offers Italian Summer
College of the Canyons is offering students another opportunity to study abroad this summer in Italy from July 5 to 16. For 12 days and 10 nights, students will be able to take Western Civilization I and II, and U.S. History I and II, all while being immersed in the vibrant and picturesque cities of Florence, Venice, Rome, Naples and Pompeii.
History professors Brad Reynolds and Robert Cleve will be the tour guides and instructors.
"Studying these subjects in Italy allows students the amazing opportunity to visit historic places such as the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, rather than relying on pictures in textbooks that cannot fully convey their grandeur and historical immortality," said Reynolds.
Some historic sites students will visit are the leaning tower of Pisa, Michelangelo's frescoed ceiling in the Sistine Chapel and the Pantheon.
The trip costs $2,995 per person and includes 15 meals, transportation and transfers by private, deluxe, air-conditioned motor coach in Italy, and sightseeing tours, including the services of local guides and admission fees to museums, as well as 10 nights accommodation in first-class hotels.
Students must pay a $300 deposit by the end of March, and final payment is due by May; space is limited.
For more information about the trip and to sign up, contact Reynolds at (661) 362-3388 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
