Program Overview

Spend spring quarter in the heart of London! Intern in a field of your choice and take two upper-division English courses: “Global London,” taught by a UC Davis professor, explores how poems, plays, novels, and films represent the British capital’s relation to the rest of the world, focusing on London as the administrative center for the British empire, as an “emporium” for colonial imports and other foreign consumer goods, as a host to foreign travelers, and as a multi-lingual city of immigrants. A second course focuses on contemporary “British Life and Culture.” Fulfill your requirements for GE Writing Experience, Arts and Humanities, and World Cultures, as well as for the English major and minor. Take classes in fashionable Kensington and participate in a professional internship for 20 hours a week. Excursions in and outside of London are also an integral part of the program.
