Program Details

Study Abroad in London explores British literature, art, philosophy, culture, and society in an international context, emphasizing the multicultural dynamics of Britain's past and present. Students will research and visit several historic sites throughout London, including the Tower of London; British Museum; Highgate Cemetery; William Shakespeare's Globe Theatre; St. Paul's Cathedral; The Victoria and Albert Museum; Westminster Abbey; and Portobello Road. We will visit Stonehenge, Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, and Edinburgh. The final week excursion will take students to Edinburgh, via Yorkshire in the north of England, to visit cultural and historic sites relevant to their coursework (such as Edinburgh Castle and the National Museum of Scotland). Students will explore the cultural and historical contexts out of which Britain’s global significance in humanistic inquiry developed and in which it continues to thrive. Students also will incorporate experiential learning into course assignments, moving beyond the classroom and into the living present through walking tours, independent research, theater, and national archives.
