London, England: Spring Semester 2020


“Being in London was an amazing cultural experience where I not only learned about life outside America, but also learned about myself. Traveling to school in the heart of the city and bonding with my host family are memories I will cherish for the rest of my life.”

The Experience:

Located in the British Isles, London is the historic capital of England and stands along the River Thames in the south east of the island of Great Britain. The city has been a major settlement for two millennia and was founded by the Romans. London is now a leading global city in the arts, commerce, education, media, and more making it a
great opportunity for students of many majors.

This semester-long program will allow students to have a first-hand look at British culture.  The program includes overnight excursions to Wales and Stratford, as well as multiple day trips.Theatrical performances also allow students to take advantage of the richest variety of theater in the world.  This program works best for students who would enjoy studying literature, drama, and art history in a cosmopolitan urban setting. Courses will be conducted at the GEO Center in a historic Georgian building in the Bloomsbury.

Accommodations:

Students will live with a British family in suburban London, allowing full immersion into the culture.  Students commute by train to downtown London.
