ENGLISH 101, CALCULUS 203, A TRIP TO PARIS?

Mais oui, a jaunt on the continent can get you college credit at Lincoln Land Community College.

Chris McDonald, a political science professor, is planning a nine-day trip to France for next year’s spring break, thus the course title of “Springtime In Paris.” Both students and folks who just want to be smarter than they are now are welcome on what the professor calls a “whirlwind immersion in the center of Europe.”

Besides strolling through the City of Lights, McDonald and his students will travel along the Western Front, visiting World War I battlefields and spending a night in Belgium. There is also, of course, the Louvre, Notre Dame and a big finish that includes a cruise on the Seine River and a trip up the Eiffel Tower.

The estimated cost is approximately $3,100, which includes airfare, hotels, ground transportation and most meals.

Students will depart Chicago on March 2 and fly back to Illinois on March 10. Information sessions for any interested students or members of the public will be held at noon and 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 13 in the R.H. Stephens Room of Menard Hall on the Springfield campus. For more information, go to www.llcc.edu/europe or contact McDonald at 786-4937 or chris.mcdonald@llcc.edu.
