Spend your summer traveling and studying in two beautiful countries: England and Scotland. In just under a month we will see iconic sights like Big Ben, Stonehenge, Edinburgh, London, and Loch Ness while also exploring many more locations! 6 credits open to all majors and all UGA and non-UGA students. 

Program Location

allieBritain, a country with a history and influence that once spread across the World and for whom it was said that the sun never sets on the Empire, plays a very different role in global politics than it did two hundred years ago. Nevertheless, it is home to over 60 million people with the sixth largest economy in the world and remains a place where music, sport, and fashion headline the world.
 
We begin our program with a week in the historic college town of Cambridge, England where we take classes at the prestigious Cambridge University. This is followed by an educational tour of London (including the Houses of Parliament), Stonehenge, the Roman influences of Bath, the Lake District National Park, Loch Ness and the Scottish Highlands. We also visit Edinburgh (including the castle) where we explore the social, political, environmental, educational, and literary features of these historic and natural places. The program is mostly travel-based, experiential and field-oriented and allows you to draw upon your own backgrounds to understand human – environment relations from a multi-disciplinary and integrated perspective.
