Program Overview

Program Description:

Mansfield College opened in Oxford in 1886. The college became part of the university formally in 1955 when it became a Permanent Private Hall. Before this students could matriculate through other colleges. Since 1955 students have studied for a wide range of degrees and Mansfield was granted full college status in 1995. Mansfield is one of the smaller colleges in Oxford, taking just over 70 undergraduate students per year.  New students quickly get to know each other and we have a well-deserved reputation as a welcoming and friendly college. Mansfield occupies a very central location in Oxford, close to the libraries and shops, but in a quiet setting near the University Parks and the river Cherwell. 

Mansfield College offers two or three spaces for George Mason University students. Students can apply to study arts, humanities, and social science subjects such as English, Theology, Geography, Economics, Philosophy, Classics. It may be possible to study tutorials in other subjects within this broad area for example subjects including art history, anthropology, oriental studies, and development studies.

Eligibility

Mason undergraduate students with a 3.70 grade point average or higher.

Credits Offered 

Students can transfer 30 undergraduate credits in their chosen discipline. Subjects available for study at Mansfield College include English, History, Philosophy, Theology and Religion, Politics, Economics, Management, Geography, Human Sciences, Oriental Studies, Classics, History of Art, Statistics, and Finance.

Academics at Oxford

Students interested in studying in Oxford over the academic year need to have high academic aspirations and be intellectually ambitious. Oxford students learn through a unique tutorial system. In a tutorial, a tutor and one, two, or three students spend an hour discussing the topic of the tutorial. Occasionally, a tutorial is replaced with faculty classes or seminars. Students are expected to do substantial independent library work and periodically produce written essays and oral presentations for their tutorials. Since the instruction is individualized, Oxford does not have a course catalog. Students in the Oxford Academic Year Experience study the same subjects and often share tutorials with Oxford students. The student's academic experience will closely resemble the experience of an Oxford second year undergraduate. Most Oxford undergraduate degrees are three year degree programs.
