UT Tyler Offers European History Travel-Study Course
Senior-level and graduate students at The University of Texas at Tyler have an opportunity to enroll in a travel-study course to Europe, Dr. Patricia A. Gajda, professor of history, announced.
The six credit-hour course, titled Central European Empires, will be offered during Summer I 2008. The cost of travel is $3,299, including a $250 deposit to hold a spot and lock in the price.
The course will include a 16-day tour of Europe, June 7 – 22, with visits to Berlin, Vienna, Warsaw, Krakow, Prague and Budapest. Three-hour class sessions will be held on Friday evenings in May. Class attendance for all participants is required.
“We will study the history of central Europe, including the Habsburgs, the rise of nationalism, the era of the world wars and the fall of communism in the 1989 revolutions,” said Gajda, who will teach the course.
The travel cost includes roundtrip airfare from D/FW, hotel accommodations (double occupancy), airport transfers, meals and admission to sites on the itinerary and an air-conditioned motor coach with tour director.
“Applications are currently being taken, but timeliness ensures availability of the 25 spots now open,” Gajda added. “We hope to retain these until January, but they are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and may be taken by other travelers who are not part of the UT Tyler group if they apply first."
Some grants are available.
