Imagine getting to study abroad for a semester and make a lifetime of amazing memories.
American River College, along with Consumnes River College, is offering students a chance to go study in Florence, Italy or London, England.
Bill Wrightson, ARC history professor will be teaching a four unit humanities course in Italy from May 22 until June 26. He has taught classes overseas before and encourages people to go. “Students should start applying right now for a chance to experience something they’ll never regret,” said Wrightson.
Paul Bethel, who is also a history professor, is teaching the history course in England. It starts Sept. 9 and students will stay until Dec 9. The trip also includes an optional trip to Scotland.
Applications are required to go on both trips; Feb. 24 is the deadline to apply to go to Italy and June 16 for England. The cost is expensive, around $10,000 a semester, but there are scholarships and financial aid available for those who qualify.
The feedback after experiencing studying abroad is positive. “You have to witness firsthand how impactful it was,” said ARC student Julies Engel, who went to Italy last semester. “You can’t understand unless you’re there.
The curriculum taught in Italy and London is the same that is taught in the classrooms. Courses for those who wish to learn a new language will be available.
