Drake students and members of the community will have a final opportunity to learn more about a summer seminar in South Africa by attending an informational session at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7, in room 318 of Howard Hall, 2515 University Ave.

“Seeing South Africa: Studying Histories to Envision Futures,” is a three-week, six-credit course that incorporates in-class meetings in Des Moines upon returning from South Africa.

Community members may enroll as auditing students, for whom coursework is optional.

The class is listed as both English 165 and English 93 and will meet multicultural and written communication course requirements for undergraduate students. Drake Law School students also may register for six credit hours.

The trip is scheduled from May 18-June 4, 2010. Highlights will include Robben Island, Apartheid Museum, Constitution Hill, the Cradle of Humankind, Soweto Memorial and the Centre for African Literary Studies.
