Chico State Student Exploring LondonAbout the Program

This one-month program introduces students to the arts, ideas, and history of Britain and Europe by visiting cultural sites across London with excursions across England. Focusing on Britain from Shakespeare to the Present, this course encounters arts and ideas – literary, visual, architectural, and theatrical – in person. We will begin at Hatfield House where students will view outstanding examples of art, architecture, and interior/landscape design. Then, we will see a performance of a Shakespeare play (having already read the play) at the reconstructed Globe Theatre. In this course, students learn the history of Europe from the Renaissance through the Napoleonic Wars by visiting a range of cultural sites and museums in and around London and Yorkshire. The site visits will proceed chronologically, and will thus provide students with a compelling and thought-provoking narrative of European history.
