The study-abroad program offers participants the unique opportunity to earn 15 credit hours while immersed in the historical city of Cambridge.
The group visits celebrated sites across the United Kingdom such as Stonehenge, London, the Lakes District, Bath, Durham, and Edinburgh, Scotland. The students will also visit the Republic of Ireland in early March.
While in Cambridge, students complete courses in British history, British literature, and a C.S. Lewis class. The participants not only learn about influential writers, but they merge their in-class studies with first-hand experience, visiting historic sites like Shakespeare’s Stratford home, Wordsworth’s home in the Lakes District, and C.S. Lewis’ Oxford residence.
The trip culminates with a two-week independently-arranged backpack tour across Europe. Students have the opportunity to arrange their own itineraries and travel accommodations to European cities like Paris, Prague, Barcelona, Venice, and Rome.
The faculty trip director this year is Dr. Steve Swindle, associate professor of political science, who will be accompanied by his wife Heather.
