London Study Abroad
July 3, 2015 - August 2, 2015
London - Short term courses
The University of Houston-Victoria, along with its consortium partner, Midwestern State University, is excited to announce our study abroad program in London, England. Each year we will arrange for students to study in the heart of one of the most exciting cities in the world. Undergraduate as well as graduate level courses will be offered. All classes will be a six credit hour course with three hours awarded for lecture and three hours for individual research. Classes will be small and include a mixture of lecture, guest lecture, field experience, and individual research. Credit hours will be awarded by Midwestern State University and will be transferred to the student's home institution.
Semester Program (4 weeks)
Each student will take one class and receive six credit hours. Classes will operate on a seminar style format with all students actively participating in discussions with their professor as well as the numerous guest lecturers. Each lecture will be a supplemented with a field experience that will add practical application to the issues that have been raised in class. Students enrolling in a class will be provided with a syllabus before they leave the United States. Research projects or papers will be completed upon return to the U.S. and sent to the professor of record for a final grade. Lecture and research must both be completed for a student to receive a final grade.
Although each class schedule will ultimately rest with the professor of record, classes will typically run Monday through Thursday. Class attendance in all classes and class related activities is mandatory and excessive absences may result in dismissal from the program. A mini-break during the session will allow students to travel throughout England & Western Europe.
