Students will gain six credits during Summer II. While in London, students will earn credit for two three-credit courses taught by Dr. Steph Brown from the U of A English Department:
ENGL 310: Contemporary Theatre in Performance: This course will focus entirely on plays, concerts, and performances by some of the most renowned theatre companies and artists in the world, which we will have the opportunity to see while in London. Students help with the selection of events, and typically attend 12-15 performances (cost included in program fees).
ENGL 360: 21st Century Literature of London: (Gen. Ed. Tier II Humanities) Students will look at new literature about London through the lens of the city's culture as it has developed over the course of the 2,000 years that have passed since it was first founded. We'll have daily meetings and activities that will allow students to range through all of London's fascinating spaces, from museums, cultural venues, and parks to markets and historic sites like the Tower of London. (These links are just a few of our many placed to visit!)
Both of these courses will focus on giving you 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.
