Program Overview

Program Description:
This distinguished academic program offers the opportunity to study modern British culture at England's oldest and one of its most venerable universities. The course of study, organized and taught by members of the Oxford faculty, uses the tutorial method, the unique style of instruction that is the central feature of an Oxford education.

The challenging course of study introduces students first hand to the style of education that Oxford has made famous. The distinctiveness of the Oxford tutorial system lies in the small intimate meetings of students with their tutors and the opportunity to attend lectures by distinguished academics from other Oxford Colleges. While students attend seminar meetings, the central part of the student's work lies in meetings with the tutor.

Setting Description:
The program is housed in one of the oldest and most famous of the colleges, New College, founded in 1379. From the windows of the college one looks out on splendid Tudor gardens, medieval walls and the courtyard of the New College chapel. The spacious single rooms in New College afford privacy and quiet and yet a close community life evolves as students get to know each other, take meals in the Great Hall, and discuss readings informally on the quadrangle, in the garden or the Junior Common Room.
