FHSU's Department of History to offer Spring Break travel abroad program

Students will have an opportunity to study in France and Belgium over Spring Break through a program offered by Fort Hays State University's Department of History and the Center for Language and Culture.

An informational meeting is scheduled from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 8, in the Trails Room of the university's Memorial Union.

Participants will follow in the footsteps of Napoleon Bonaparte from his birthplace on the Mediterranean island of Corsica to his final defeat by the allied European powers at the Battle of Waterloo.

Highlights of the trip include visits to Paris, Corsica and Brussels.

Participants in the France trip will also enroll in the three-credit-hour class "Topics in History -- Napoleon and the Hundred Days," prior to the trip. Students will learn about revolutionary and Napoleonic France. At the end of the course, students will share their research and experiences in France by doing class presentations and a final paper.

This trip is open to all majors and may be applied towards general electives at FHSU.
