Upcoming Short-Term Trips
HIST230 History and Culture of Ireland, Spring 2014
½ credit, second seven weeks. 8AM TTh (Register Nov-Dec, 2013)
This is a survey of Irish history and culture appropriate for students preparing to visit the Emerald Isle.
Students are not required to go on the trip to Ireland in May, but those who did so in 2008 had a great time and they knew what they were seeing.
This will be an eight day visit based in Dublin, with day tours through the Irish Republic and to Northern Ireland. We will see Celtic art at Trinity College, green countryside on our bus trips, and evening pubs with dancing, Guinness and Bass.
The cost would be around $2300 and departure from Chicago would probably be around May 20-23.
