London Global Seminar
Heart of the West: Sociology and Philosophy in London, England
As the capital of one of the largest empires in human history, London has acquired a nearly matchless collection of art, historical artifacts, scientific exhibits, and other extraordinary resources. But London is more than just museums and landmarks — it is a living, thriving microcosm of its former global empire. The courses being offered are designed to take advantage of the many museums, galleries, and cultural surroundings to enrich the learning experience.
Picture yourself leaving morning classes for Trafalgar Square, listening to the chimes of Big Ben, then hopping on a double-decker bus to Buckingham Palace to watch the changing of the guard. Afterwards you spend time ogling the tombstones of England’s famous in Westminster Abbey, or perhaps you are awed by the feats of civilizations past in the Natural History Museum. Finally, you finish the day sipping tea and eating delicious scones with clotted cream.
Students have the option to choose either UCOR 3000 or SOC 3620
