UK: WVU @ Oxford Summer Gap Program
london gap 2Join us for two weeks full of travel and literature! The 2017 WVU at Oxford Gap program will take place from July 22 to August 5th. Participants will earn 3 credits for ENGL-232, Poetry. This course satisfies area F6 of the General Education Foundations, Arts and Creativity. 
Students will stay at a 500-year-old Oxford campus for two weeks, getting to know the City of Dreaming Spires and studying poetry in the place where so many of the best works were written. The group will travel to London to see a Shakespeare comedy at the Globe Theatre on the Thames River and will spend the rest of the weekend visiting iconic places like Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Covent Garden.
The cost of the trip is $4500, which includes course credit, all lodging, group airfare, breakfast each day, two plays, admission to historic sights, and transportation within England. The trip will be led by Dr. David Stewart, who earned his doctorate at Oxford University, and has taught English literature and worked with international students at WVU for over 20 years.


Housing: Participants stay in traditional student housing at Brasenose College of Oxford University. This awards students the opportunity to have experience living in a residence hall prior to the start of their Fall Semester.
