Westmont College England Semester – (Fall only, every other year)

The England Semester program takes place during even years only. It is directed by English department faculty and combines travel to literary and cultural centers with residential study in the British Isles. Students study English literature in the land of its origin, witnessing firsthand the birthplaces of major writers and the settings of their works. They attend theatre performances in Edinburgh, London, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Dublin, and visit 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 last week of the semester is spent on sites related to the electives offered on the program. England Semester Homepage

SSO students enroll in a primary and secondary tutorial, an integrative seminar, and the British landscape course. Students group their work in a concentration so that all elements of their programme work together.
