The trip is being coordinated by MC Program Chair of English Dr. Pamela Howell ( firstname.lastname@example.org , 432/685-4628) and MC Department Chair of Modern Languages and Speech Katherine Allen ( email@example.com , 432/685-6409). The American Council for International Studies (ACIS) is handling all arrangements. Dr. Howell has coordinated many of MC’s travel/study classes in the past with ACIS—most recently in the summer of 2015 to France.
Howell said, “These trips are a great way to study the culture and history as well as view the magnificent architecture and art of Europe. I invite MC students and those from the community who are interested to come with us to Italy for a panoramic view of this culturally rich and beautiful country.”
