The Oxford Summer Program gathers students to enjoy life and literature at Oxford University, the oldest English-speaking university in the world. The program will be housed at Wadham College. Students will take two upper-division English classes and enjoy many field trips and theatrical performances. This program is a wonderful balance of academics and fun, an opportunity to get to know Department of English faculty and other students outside the classroom, and a chance to live in an early 17th-century English college in modern-day Oxford.


Sponsored by College of Liberal Arts
