Program Overview

Program Description:

The British Studies Program, founded in 1976, is organized by The University of Southern Mississippi through an academic consortium of colleges and universities. The program offers ten to fifteen different courses in various disciplines. Students will take one course and earn six credit hours through lectures taught by British scholars, artists, business leaders, and government officials, and through field excursions to various locations in and around London. On British Studies, London becomes the students' classroom as they experience their subject first-hand and conduct research supervised by their professor.

Walking side by side with people from virtually every culture on earth, you’ll feel your horizons expanding with every step. As the folks you buy morning coffee from tell you about the lives they led in the Ukraine before coming to live where you do now, on the South Bank of London’s beloved River Thames, you will experience first hand what it means to live in a truly global village. What’s missing? Just you, walking under the moonlight and stars, to cross “your” river and bridge home from a play you dreamed of seeing since your childhood. And you, taking some reflective time to look again at Big Ben’s tower on one side and St. Paul’s Cathedral on the other. While the rush of the river is drowned out by a flood of buses and rickshaws all around you, Stamford Street
