Sign up for Paris Summer TravelPDF Study! NEW!
We are once again running our very successful trip to Paris with one new exciting change - we will also be visiting the French countryside and the towns of Chartres and Blois. TRS 311- Paris and the French Countryside PDF runs July 11-21. Travel fees are $3,895 and include basically everything but lunch and dinner. Registration is open now and those interested need to sign up for TRS 311 (found in the noncredit schedule) by March 29 as space is limited! Partial payments can be made (must be done in person - online registration only accepts full payment) to reserve your spot, but full payment must be received by the March 29th deadline. For licensed architects, the trip is approved for 20 HSW/SD continuing education units through the AIA/CES. Students wishing to take the course for credit will need to sign up for ACH 261 when the summer schedule comes out. Contact Professor Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-777-2437 for more details.
