USAC England: British Culture, Politics, and Literature Studies in Brighton

Brighton’s colorful character, history, architecture, and cosmopolitan culture all combine to make it an exciting and vibrant place to live and study. The Brighton program allows you to enroll in a range of University of Brighton courses in a variety of disciplines for one semester or a full year. All semester and yearlong students will take a required British History and Culture course to provide excellent opportunities to learn about and experience the local way of life. Despite being small enough for you to bump into friends in the center, Brighton is surprisingly sophisticated and often dubbed “London-by-the-Sea.” With the sea on one side and the South Downs on the other, the city has an open air feel. There are several excellent reasons to decide to study in the United Kingdom. Courses at British universities are taught by professors who do almost all the teaching and tutorial work with undergraduates while maintaining a high level of research activity. Although the UK shares a common language with the US, it remains a foreign country, with diverse traditions, values, and views of the world. Time in the UK will challenge you personally, open your eyes to different ways of looking at the current problems of the world and enable you to directly experience the wonderful culture and history of the European continent.
