Interested in traveling to Rome for a month at the end of this semester? This doesn’t happen often, but there are currently five seats available for Rome: The Eternal City, Professor Larry Hundersmarck’s hugely popular travel course, which gives students the unique opportunity to explore the Colosseum, marvel at the Sistine Chapel ceiling, visit the Vatican, and study in one of the world’s most beautiful cities, all while earning six–that’s right, SIX–credits. Learn more about the course here or visit the Travel Courses website to learn more about other opportunities.
