England Semester 2014
Are you the sort of person enjoys traveling, reading literature and seeing plays for a semester?
The England Semester program is directed by English department faculty and combines travel to literary and cultural centers with residential study in the British Isles. Students earn between 12 and 16 units of credit in English from Westmont while studying English literature in the land of its origin, witnessing firsthand the birthplaces of major writers and the settings of their works. In past years, students have attended theatre performances in Edinburgh, London, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Dublin, and have visited sites throughout the UK and Ireland including Oxford, Cambridge, the Lake District of the Romantic poets, and Hardy’s country in southern England. Upper- division English and Theatre credit is offered.
The opportunity to go on England Semester with faculty and students who are fellow believers and are excited by learning is surely one worth pursuing.
