Program Details

Study Abroad in London explores British literature, art, media, philosophy, culture, and society in an international context, emphasizing the multicultural dynamics of Great Britain's past and present. Students will research and visit historic sites throughout London, including the Tower of London; the British Museum; the British Library; Offices of the BBC; British Film Institute; the National Portrait Gallery; the Tate Modern museum; William Shakespeare’s Globe theatre; St. Paul’s Cathedral; Buckingham Palace; Westminster Abbey; and Portobello Road. We will visit Stonehenge and the medieval Salisbury Cathedral and Stratford upon Avon, as well. Students will explore the cultural and historical contexts out of which London’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, public lectures, and national archives. The group will conclude its learning adventure with seven days in Edinburg, Scotland touring museums and historic sites and exploring the literary, economic, and media culture of Scotland.
