Hill College


Earn College Credit While Exploring South Texas


Six FlagsHILLSBORO – The Hill College History and Art Departments are offering a  six-day, five-night trip through the South Texas coastal region as a Summer I course June 9-14. Along the way, students will be immersed in the rich history and art of the Texas Indians, European explorers, Tejanos, revolutionaries and pioneers of the region.

"This Six Flags Over South Texas course will be immersed in history and art of many cultures in the region,” said Texas Heritage Museum Dean John Versluis. “It will be an enriched learning experience for students and community members who wish to take the course."  

Those wishing to venture to South Texas will have a choice of registering for the academic course or the continuing education course. Academic students will earn six credit hours (three in history, three in art). The academic dual course will include two research projects and regular course study throughout the summer session. The field trip will leave from the Texas Heritage Museum at Hill College, Hill County Campus, on June 9, 2014, and return on June 14. Included in the cost is tuition, transportation, hotel accommodations and admission fees to attractions along the way. Students will pay for their own afternoon and evening meals.
