HIS-205 Travels in Time

200 hours = 9 hrs. lecture, 9 hrs. seminar, plus 12-21 days travel, 3 credits


Those who would dare are invited to step into the North Island College time machine. Walk the streets of ancient Pompeii. Contemplate the accomplishments of Incan Civilization from the heights of Machu Picchu. Listen for the sound of the Minotaur below as you stand in the palace at Knossos. This course combines intensive study of one historical theme or civilization with a two-to-three-week international tour. Typically, Travels in Time will only be offered in the Spring semester and will feature a short series of preparatory lectures and seminars followed by the trip. The class will conclude with a couple of meetings upon the group's return. The academic demands in HIS 205 will be significant but are meant to accentuate rather than to detract from the travel experience.
