London + Rome travel opportunity

by Lynn Brown

Every time I see my dad, he asks me: “Have you been to Rome?”  He believes that experiencing Rome is necessary for understanding western civilization, literature and art. So, to honor my father, I will be joining Meg Roland, Marylhurst students and alumni for a study abroad session to London and Rome September 5-21, 2014.

Please join us for the information session on March 4 from 5-6pm in the Education Conference Room on the third floor of BP John. You can earn six credits for Lit 245 (Literature of Travel – The Eternal City: Rome in the English literary imagination) and Art 386 (Travel Study: London and Rome).

As Director of Career Services here at Marylhurst, I will infuse the trip with some career perspectives. Employers like to hire people who have studied abroad. Isn’t it wonderful that this exciting trip will also make you a more competitive applicant for your next job? Check this article out!
