Based in Bloomsbury in the heart of London, this study abroad will focus primarily on exploring one of the world’s greatest cities. As the UK’s capital city, one of the world’s cultural and commercial centers, with a rich and varied history, London provides an amazing study abroad location. We will explore much of central London, incorporating both well-known sites, and more off-the-beaten-track locations in this global metropolis. While the program will be principally based in London, short visits will be offered to the ancient university city of Oxford, and, if time permits, to the Georgian masterpiece of Bath, in southwestern England.
Program plan: meet as a class on campus for the first half of the spring 2013 semester, then spend Spring Break in London.
