2013 Oxford Summer Study Program

Posted on 10/8/2012 5:57:55 PM

Would you like to earn academic credits while exploring Oxford University and the surrounding countryside? Would you enjoy seeing the sites of London on day trips or long weekends? Do you want to see live theater of the highest quality at the Globe or in the West End of London? If you said “Yes!” perhaps this is the Study Abroad Program for you!

IUP students can earn credits toward program completion while spending three weeks in the beautiful surroundings of Oxford University and exploring London and other U.K. sites.

Several courses offered in the past will be available again this coming summer:

  • Shakespeare
  • Devised Theater
  • Drawing and Painting
  • Photojournalism
  • Family Nursing (from Bloomsburg U.)
  • Comparative Politics (from East Stroudsburg U.)

This year, for the first time, we are considering offering a special version of a course in literature for young people that will meet the requirement for Adolescent Literature for English Education students, but that also may have appeal for B.A. English majors and teachers. The course will include literature for young readers that has sprung from the British tradition, including works by J.R.R. Tolkein, C.S. Lewis, Lewis Carroll, J.K. Rowling, and others.

For our planning purposes, please let Lynne Alvine, IUP Oxford Summer Study program director, know if you are interested in taking ENGL 434: Shakespeare or the course in literature for young readers in Oxford this coming summer—or any of the other courses.

Information about last summer's program is still available on the Oxford Program website. Most information regarding costs and other details will be the same.

Contact Lynne Alvine (lalvine@iup.edu) for further information and/or to indicate your interest in the program. You may also want to attend the Study Abroad Fair in the HUB Ohio Room on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, from noon to 3:00 p.m.
