June 26-Aug 2, 2019
"My study abroad program in London yielded life long friends and expanded my worldview in a matter of six weeks through the courses and excursions we took. It was the best summer of my life!"
- Will Sorensen
Operations & Technology Management and Economics, Summer 2016
Students will take two courses:
- FA 207 (3 credits) Introduction to Fine Arts from Larry Larsen
Either of these courses can also be counted for upper division credits in these disciplines if a student has already taken FA 207 or SOC 101.
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.
Students take two of the offered courses while in London. Excursions include visits to Cambridge, Canterbury, Dover, Hampton Court, and Greenwich. Students also visit the National Portrait Gallery, Westminster Abbey, the Natural History Museum, and the Science Museum. The program also includes visits to theatrical performances.
Students and faculty will live in apartments with kitchen facilities in downtown London.
