Are you interested in learning about art history? Students can register for Art History I, offered in the summer as a general education elective or program requirement. For those of you who desire more than a class to get to learn about history, they have the opportunity to travel to Europe to learn and appreciate art history.
If you’ve always wanted to take a trip to Europe, specifically Scotland and England, this spring could be your chance. On May 18, CCC has a nine-day trip to study abroad. Of course, like everything, it will cost some money. However, if you contact Professor Sarah Shapiro, the fees are very affordable. The tour of these two fascinating cities comes with some convenient accommodations as well.
On the first day of the trip, those who go will fly overnight to Edinburgh, the capitol of Scotland. Travelers will be able to find out more details about the city by the tour guide that will accompany them. The tour of the city includes a visit to the famous Edinburgh Castle. Day 4 is a free day to visit or shop. Edinburgh has many attractions, including over five captivating museums. One of those museums is the first of its kind. The Museum of Childhood lets you see numerous toys and games from different generations. The fourth day ends with a night train to London. The next day, a guided tour through London. Travelers see national monuments such as: Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus, Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral. On the sixth day of the nine-day trip, the group will visit the Tower of London. Inside the Tower of London is some of the best British food and shopping in the country. Day seven includes an optional trip to Stonehenge and the ancient Roman town of Bath. These two attractions are worth making a point to see. On the last full day in Europe, a free day to ride through London is scheduled. Travelers can shop at Harrods or Portobello Market. Other attractions include the British Museum and the Tate Modern. Don’t forget about riding the famous London Eye, an 800 passenger, 30-minute ferris wheel ride that reaches 450 feet high. The trip ends with a flight home on May 26.
Pricing ranges from $2864.00-$3044.00 depending on what kind of room you choose. Included in the fees are the roundtrip airfares with meals on board, breakfast every morning, and dinner in Scotland on the first day and in London on the fifth day.
