For the fifth year, Northeast Texas Community College is offering an exciting travel-study opportunity May 16 to 20. While the trip is offered for college credit, community members who just want to come along are encouraged to sign up.
"We always have a great time on these trips and it is really a fun way to learn more about our government and the history of our nation. We want people to know that you don't have to be a registered student to participate," Rex Allen, NTCC Assistant Professor of Political Science, said.
This year's 5-day adventure will travel to Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, Penn. Students will take in sites, including the Smithsonian, various monuments and a visit to Capitol Hill to meet with Congressman Ralph Hall. A day trip to Philadelphia will also be included.
Those interested in participating for college credit will receive up to six hours of course credit for American National Government (GOVT 2305) and/or United States History (HIST 1301). For students who have already taken these courses, there is also a Special Topics course option. The courses are being offered for the Intersession mini-mester.
For more information, contact Allen at email@example.com or call 903-434-8235. The full Intersession and Summer schedule of classes can be viewed at www.ntcc.edu/schedules.
