Program Details

This course focuses on the creation of the U.S. Constitution at the Convention of 1787, and the debate about its ratification between the Federalists and Anti-Federalists.  Why study the U.S. Constitution in the UK?  Sometimes it is the perspective of the foreigner that best allows one to really see and understand your own nation's heritage, and in this case, UVU has a partnership with an Oxford expert on the American Constitution.  Beyond that are the unique features of Oxford University education, such as the tutorial method and the use of world-class libraries.  The program does not focus on British constitutuionalism, but students do have opportunities to learn about it, and other aspects of British history and culture, through excursions to the House of Parliament in London, through the many museums and tours available in Oxford, and through exchange with the professors.

Program Sites:

  • Oxford, UK
  • London
