Program Overview

This nine day Spring Break program is combined with a KU spring semester History of Western Civilization II (HWC 115/205) course. Students enroll in this HWC course and spend their spring break visiting museums and other locations throughout London. Each student completes a portfolio project throughout the semester, including responses to the experiences had in London!


Submitted by Sally Carmichael.

Students will leave for London on Friday, March 14 and will return on Sunday, March 23 after a full itinerary of great experiences, including trips to Oxford, the “Enlightenment Room” at the British Museum, as well as a trip on a Double-Decker bus around the town! Three fabulous group dinners are also provided for participants in the program.

Beyond this, students will have time to themselves EVERY afternoon and evening to go out and further explore the city and culture in reference to the topics learned in Western Civilization
