One cannot imagine the individual transformation that takes place over only a few weeks in a place where the language and food are familiar, but the culture, the history and the people are so very different.

London study abroad has been a graduate school event snuggled between Summer 1 and Summer 2, taking advantage of Week 0. The itinerary is full of field research meeting with business owners, civic leaders and experiencing sites rich with history. And, if one is especially adventurous, time is set aside to travel to neighboring countries as some did - to the cities of Paris and Rome, along with the breathtaking countryside of Tuscany in the northern part of Italy.  

Now in 2017, undergraduate students are invited to join the graduate students heading to London for an immersion experience covering the history, culture and business aspect of the United Kingdom.

Study Abroad Requirements:

  • Completion of 2 quarters prior to departure.
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Reference from student's academic advisor
  • Completed FAFSA, SIGNED financial aid plan and a $0 financial-aid balance by February 28, 2017
