Study Abroad: Literature and Culture in the UK

 

Announcing a new London-based Study Abroad Program

Literature and Culture in the UK

Literature and Culture in the UK is a new study abroad program sponsored by the University of Arizona English program and open to University of Arizona students from any major who have completed  first-year writing. For 6 weeks during the 2018 Summer II session, students will live in London and meet daily to explore the abundant cultural offerings of the city.

The program offers six ENGL credits in two classes taught by Dr. Steph Brown: ENGL 295A: Brand New Ancients and ENGL 310: Studies in Genre: Classical and Contemporary Drama in Performance. Both of these courses will focus on giving students the opportunity to explore London's past as it exists in London today through its architecture, museums, and culture, while  taking advantage of our own location in present-day London to see what forms “newness” takes in music, theatre, literature, the visual arts, the sciences, politics, food, and popular culture. (For students who are not English majors or minors, ENGL310 meets the Tier-II Gen Ed Humanities requirement.) Full descriptions of the courses can be found below.

The deadline for applications is February 15, 2018, and accepted students will take a 1-credit orientation course, ENGL 294, in Spring 2018. If you have questions about the program's curriculum, contact Dr. Brown at stephbrown@email.arizona.edu. For help with the application process or questions about program requirements contact the program's Study Abroad Coordinator, Devon Bilsing, at bilsing@email.arizona.edu.  To learn more or apply, please see the following Study Abroad application page.
