The goal of the London History & Literature Program is to allow students, through a combination of coursework and directed research, to read, write, and live London. It will also help students learn how to conduct advanced research projects and introduce them to the best modern scholarship in their fields—a unique opportunity for students considering advanced study in English or history. Students undertake research projects in English history or literature with the guidance and the support of faculty, and classroom-based courses offer a broad variety of approaches to the history, literature, and society of London. Students will live in Boston University’s unmatched student housing in London and take classes in the BU London Academic Center, but the real classroom is the city itself—its life and its people through the centuries.
This program is offered for those students who are looking to enhance their Spanish language skills while working abroad in one of Europe’s most important vibrant commercial centers. Students with sufficient language skills take three courses along with an internship, which ranges between 15 and 20 hours per week.
