Contemporary London, United Kingdom

  • City: London
  • Term: Spring
  • Instruction in: English

Join fellow U-M students and two U-M faculty in London this Spring term for the University of Michigan's Contemporary London program. All students on the program will take two classes and earn 3 credits for each class. Classes will be held at the Florida State University London Study Centre (FSU).

This six-week program is designed to provide an introduction to the history and culture of the city of London, and the multicultural society of modern Britain. The courses examines how the ethnic make-up of contemporary Great Britain society challenges the idea of what it means to be a British citizen in the twenty-first century. Students will also develop a foundational understanding of the social and historical causes of present-day health inequities in London and surrounding areas, as well as national and city-wide strategies to address these inequities.

A variety of excursions are planned for your learning experience in London and Brighton. Past excursions have included visits to theatre performances, the Globe, the Imperial War Museum, the Houses of Parliament, Brick Lane, Oxford, Cambridge, Brighton, the Black Pride Festival, the British Museum, Whitechapel, and cathedral towns such as Canterbury and Salisbury.
