British Literary Experience | From Londinium to Millennium

Summer 2018

These courses are ideal for the on-site study of London’s literature and culture. They will offer students the opportunity to actually see some of the works studied, where the creators worked and lived, and immerse themselves in the cultural legacies of these works. They will travel to historical sites that informed these writers, painters, musicians, and thinkers from the Western tradition.

This program is great for students looking to fulfill JU CORE requirements. Students can fulfill both the English and Humanities CORE requirements on this program.
