NMJC Announces Architectural Travel Class
9/2/2008 6:03:41 p.m. - Hobbs, NM. Area residents who might be interested in traveling to Italy next spring as part of an innovative college course are encouraged to attend a meeting Friday, September 5, at 5:30 pm in New Mexico Junior College's Western Heritage Museum Theatre. Discussions will include dates, costs, passports, travel preparations, and other essential information.
The Spring 2009 Historical Architectural Travel class, taught by instructor Michael Henderson, will combine a seminar discussion and lecture format with a tour of Italian historic architectural sites in cities such as Rome, Venice, and Florence. Each spring, the course will focus on architectural sites somewhere in the world.
According to Henderson, while students will be responsible for all travel expenses, the cost is greatly reduced, thanks to educational discounts offered for students. "This is a great way for anyone who would like to see some of the world's most amazing architecture," said Henderson. "As affordable as classes are at NMJC, this is an incredible educational opportunity." Henderson added that openings are limited to the first 40 persons to sign up and submit deposits.
Dr. Michele Clingman, Dean of Enrollment Management, pointed out that anyone over 55 can enjoy an even better deal: their institutional fees are waived by the college. "In addition to the travel expenses, all they would have to pay for the course would be the tuition. It's an affordable and educational way to see one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and taking this class would only serve to enhance the whole experience. I hope people take advantage of this great opportunity."
