British Studies Program offers summer travel opportunity/university credit; informational meeting Feb. 22

Students at the University of Louisiana at Monroe will have the opportunity to study abroad this summer through the British Studies Program, to be offered during the second summer term, July 3 – Aug. 3. Students that are interested should attend the meeting on Friday, Feb. 22 at 10:30 a.m. in the Student Center.

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 $5,199 for undergraduates, and $5,399 for graduate students. This 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 8.

The program is organized by the University of Southern Mississippi through an academic consortium, which includes ULM. The purpose of the consortium is to promote a more profound understanding of British culture and society among students and faculty through scholarly and educational activities in both the United Kingdom and the United States.

Courses will be offered in the following areas: art, English, history, journalism, political science, sociology, speech communication, library science, psychology, theatre, and business.
