Program Description:

William & Mary’s long-standing summer program in Cambridge, England, is housed in beautiful and historical Christ’s College, one of 31 colleges that comprise the University of Cambridge. Christ’s was founded in 1437 and later endowed by Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of King Henry VII. The college is located in the heart of the city of Cambridge about an hour-long train trip from central London.

The 2014 session runs five weeks--from July 4 to August 8. Classes will generally meet from Mon-Thurs, with excursions on weekends. At least one weekend will be free, so that students who wish to can schedule travel on their own. W&M students are housed in comfortable single rooms in the stately 18C court of the college.  The program price will include breakfast and partial supplements for other meals.
There is a required 1 credit course to be taken in Spring 2014, which you will be registered for following your acceptance into the program. This course is designed specifically for students going on the summer program and is intended to enhance your cross-cultural understanding of Cambridge and to cover a variety of pre-departure questions. The scheduling of this course will be dependent on the class times possible for the program participants.

The Faculty
This year's faculty come from various disciplines at the College: GIS Program Director Stuart Hamilton, Associate Professor of Art History Catherine Levesque, and Professor of English Chris MacGowan. In addition to hosting several information meetings scheduled for Fall term, they will be available in Fall and Spring terms to assist individual students interested in the Cambridge program.

The Courses
All of the courses involve week-day class sessions and plan to include on-site trips to places relevant to the course material.  Possible excursions for the 2014 program could include London, Bath, Stonehenge, Stratford, and Canterbury. 6 credits, 2 courses chosen from (all 3 credits):
