Students at the University of Louisiana at Monroe will have the opportunity to study abroad this summer through the British Studies Program being offered July 4 through August 2.
As a participant of the British Studies Program, students will explore the world of the British monarchy at Windsor Castle and Canterbury Cathedral, enjoy the distinctive Celtic cultures of Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, and experience London theatre at its finest. Students must have 28 hours of university credit to participate. Both undergraduate and graduate credit may be earned.
Cost for the four-week program is $4,699 for undergraduates and $4,999 for graduate students and includes tuition, fees, housing and airline ticket. Students will be responsible for food and personal spending money. A $250 commitment payment is due by May 10.
"The British Studies Program has provided international educational opportunities for thousands of young Americans," said Dr. Martha Upshaw, Director of Continuing Education at ULM and Coordinator of the University's British Studies Program. "The experience broadens the students' global perspective. Never before has it been more important for our students to understand the world and its people," she observed.
Now entering its third decade, the program is organized by
the University of Southern Mississippi through an academic consortium,
which includes the University of Louisiana at Monroe, Cameron
University (OK), the College of Charleston (SC), Henderson State
