“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.”
