Four students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Journalism will participate in the 26th annual Nebraska at Oxford Program July 20-Aug. 16 at the University of Oxford in England, the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
Sponsored by the University of Nebraska–Lincoln College of Business Administration, Nebraska at Oxford celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2013. It is the university's most popular study abroad program with more than 1,700 alumni.
During the four-week program, students can take two lecture-tutorial courses on British political and international economic policy, "Political Economy of Britain Since 1945" and "International Economics," for six hours of University of Nebraska–Lincoln academic credit. Non-business students can enroll in "Shakespeare's Dramatic Arts" rather than "International Economics." Lecturers for the courses are faculty from the University of Oxford.
Cultural excursions supplement the course lectures and tutorials, including having high tea, attending the horse races at Sandown Park and a West End show in London, and experiencing a Royal Shakespeare Company performance in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The program is open to students of all academic majors, including undergraduate students with at least sophomore standing.
