The department offers a unique study abroad program to London, the theatre capital of the world, where students see more than 25 shows in a four-week period.
British Theatre in Perspective is an immersive study program exploring English art and culture in London. The numerous cultural institutions of the city — the museums, galleries, and exhibits — serve as educational resources that enrich theatrical viewing.
Class sessions provide opportunities for contextualization and reflection; afternoon field trips offer exposure to major cultural institutions; and evening are spent watching some of the finest theatrical productions in the world ranging from commercial offerings in the West End to radical experimentation on the Fringe.
London becomes a site of exploration as students encounter the geography, architecture and people of this commercial and artistic world center. The London residency is augmented by day trips to Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, and Greenwich.
