This past summer I completed this wonderful program, and I have to say it was the best trip I've taken! As a theater major, I found this to be a particularly beneficial study abroad. Although the program is centered around English-Lit, I would argue that it is just as much centered around theater in London. The curriculum is based on the current summer season of plays being performed in both London and Stratford. Essentially, you read a play, use class time to discuss history and textual analysis, and then go to see the plays with everyone else on the trip. The venues that the program attends are the best in England. The RSC, the National Theater in London, and the Globe Theater are comparable to our Broadway. The shows are THAT amazing! If you are a theater student, studying Shakespeare is incredibly important. This program will definitely get you familiar and comfortable with the text. Likewise, if you are an English major, the program will challenge you to look at the text through performance and theatrical analysis. Apart from the academic side, you will have so much fun in England! Art museums, pub-crawls, hiking the rolling hills, getting to know the RSC actors at the Dirty Duck... Trust me, you will have so many stories when you return to the states. BUT you won't know until you go! If you want to visit a great English speaking country and have an amazing summer, do this program!
