- Program Description:
- The British Studies Program resides at Regent's Park College, in a location central to the University and to the city heart itself; it is right next door to the Eagle and Child pub, at which C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and other members of "The Inklings" gathered to discuss literature, art, and life. Founded in 1752, Regent's Park offered the first university places to non-Anglican students in Great Britain. Today Regent's Park continues its open and ecumenical educational tradition, admitting students for matriculation regardless of religious affiliation. Students will live, dine, and study in an atmosphere incomparably rich in cultural heritage and intellectual accomplishment. Most weeks, no classes meet on Fridays, so students have ample time for weekend travel or for enjoyment of Oxford's many resources-the world's greatest bookstore (Blackwell's), the Ashmolean Museum, the Holywell Music Rooms, the Cotswolds, Blenheim Palace, and punting on the Cherwell.
This year, the curriculum presents a selection of six course offerings in British studies, including Shakespeare, literature and cultural studies, history, political science, biology and theater. The program supplements the regular curriculum with lectures and informal talks on aspects of British society and culture by distinguished visitors. It also sponsors visits to Stratford-upon-Avon, London, and the environs of Oxford environs. The entire group travels to Stratford for a Royal Shakespeare Company production and to London for a range of cultural and historical visits.
