Tuition and Fees
Make the infamous history of London come to life by journeying through cathedrals, courts, social institutions and museums, and a "city" of finance and commerce. Study the roots of British culture from its founding in the Roman period to the extensive destruction of the Great Fire of London, 1666.
Journey through the Medieval and early modern periods and explore the struggle between state and church culminating with King Henry VIII. From the Roman walls and medieval Guildhalls to the economic and cultural powerhouse of today, follow the rise of the British Empire and the achievements of the city during the reign of Elizabeth I.
May apply toward upper-level credit for history, humanities, or electives.

A field study course packs all of the 48 contact-hours of other courses into adventure-filled days on location, so you can earn one to three credits at an accelerated pace. In addition, rather than taking place in an education center, a field study course takes place in a historical European city where the subject being studied has its roots. You will visit historical sites and museums as well as participate in lectures that bring it all together for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
