Richland Honors Program Study Abroad Travels to the British Isles Next Year

Explore the British Isles with the Richland College Honors Study Abroad Program, May 20-30, 2019!

During the 11-day course, students will receive three hours of credit for Honors English 1301, 1302 or 2321 (British Literature) and participate in selected readings, all while experiencing the stunning landscapes and imposing medieval architecture in Ireland, Wales and England.

“Bringing history, literature and culture to life by experiencing what we’ve only seen in pictures, heard in a classroom or imagined in our minds is what I enjoy most about studying abroad,” says Erin Kelley, Ph.D., trip leader and English faculty member at Richland.

Interested students may attend one of the following upcoming information sessions at Richland College:

  • May 2: 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Crockett Hall, room C110
  • May 3: Noon-1 p.m., Crockett Hall, room C110; 3:30-4:30 p.m., El Paso Hall, room E055
  • May 7: 2-3 p.m., El Paso Hall, room E055
  • May 8: 12:30-1:30 p.m., Crockett Hall, room C110

By studying abroad through DCCCD, students save money with a lower tuition cost versus most four-year institutions.

To participate, current DCCCD students must be accepted into the Richland College Honors Program, which requires a 3.25 GPA or higher and nine or more completed college-level credits. Students who are new to college may also qualify for the program through TSI, ACT or SAT scores. Previous Richland students who have transferred to a four-year school may also return to take the course. Apply to the Richland College Honors Program to begin the process.

A $150 discount off the Education First (EF) program cost is available through May 11, with tuition for the course due to DCCCD during the regular registration period for Maymester 2019. Scholarship opportunities are available now.
