This summer, Midland College (MC) students will have an opportunity to earn six hours of college credit while studying history, government and/or geography in the Washington, DC area. From July 10-15, MC will provide students with an opportunity to tour sites in and near the nation’s capital such as The Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol and Supreme Court Buildings, the White House, Mount Vernon, Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian and other areas of interest.

Students may enroll in one or two of the following courses for this unique hands-on travel/study opportunity:
GEOG 1303: World Regional Geography (7020613F)
GOVT 2305: Federal Government (7044163F)
HIST 1301: United States History I (7030163F)
HIST 1302: United States History II (7035163F)

In addition to the travel component, students will also be required to participate in online instruction and complete online assignments, quizzes and exams. The online classes run June 5-July 27.

“In previous summers, we have offered similar travel/study courses, and we are happy that we are able to provide this experience once again,” explained Mike Makowsky, MC department chair of Social Sciences. “The purpose of the Geography/Government/History travel course is to provide students with hands-on experiences at some of the principal sites associated with U.S. development and government.”

Trip cost is $1,500, which includes airfare, lodging and museum/exhibit entry fees. A $500 deposit is required by March 23, with full payment for the trip payable by April 23. Students will also need to be responsible for meals, ground transportation, insurance and other personal expenses, plus applicable Midland College tuition, fees and textbooks.
