Britain and Ireland: History and Culture Study Program

This popular three-month, semester-abroad experience features study and travel throughout the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) and the Republic of Ireland. The itinerary and content of the course vary depending on the professors who participate, so no two programs are alike.

Application/Selection Process:
This program is next offered in fall 2011. Whitworth students will be invited to an informational session in fall 2010, after which the online application will become available. Students will be selected in late fall based on the application, a written essay, faculty and peer recommendations and an interview. Students selected to participate in the trip will enroll in a preparatory course in spring 2011.

Curriculum:
Students take four consecutive three-credit courses based on the expertise of the participating faculty members. Past courses have focused on the Christian History, Politics, Theatre, and Literature of Britain and Ireland.

Costs:
Whitworth tuition plus an estimated program fee of $7,900.
