- Program Description:
- Since 1971, the FSU London Program has offered students from across the nation a fine liberal arts curriculum in an historic seat of Western government, commerce, and literature. The London Study Centre is located in a row of 17th century buildings registered on the British National Heritage list. Students live and study in our state-of-the art educational facility in the heart of the Bloomsbury district, one block from the British Museum and minutes from the theatre district, the National Gallery and many more London landmarks.
This program is designed to add a study abroad dimension to The Florida State University’s baccalaureate and master’s degree programs in International Affairs. The program is exceptionally rigorous academically and is ideal for graduate students and those undergraduates who are seeking a very demanding yet extremely rewarding program. All courses offered count toward the International Affairs major and the International Affairs minor. Courses are taught in a stimulating seminar format that engages students in an active discussion of current issues of European politics such as the European Union and ethnic conflict. In addition to formal course work, the curriculum includes a complementary program of lectures and briefings at various academic and governmental organizations. These may include meetings with members of Parliament, briefings at the Bank of England on the European single currency, sessions at the American Embassy, guest speakers from London universities, and representatives of multinational corporations operating in the United Kingdom. A highlight of the program is a trip to the continent on which students gain valuable insight into the workings of international organizations such as the European Parliament,NATO, the European Union and/or Human Rights organizations. The program is open to students in International Affairs or in related discipline.
