British Studies Program
You'll be living and learning in London, a city of over eight million people, in a wide-ranging program in its fourth decade. The British Studies Program is organized by The University of Southern Mississippi in cooperation with an academic consortium of other colleges and universities. You will take one course for six hours of credit on the program, learning through lectures taught by eminent scholars, artists, business leaders and government officials, and field excursions and seminars led by American professors. London is your classroom as you experience your subject firsthand and conduct research supervised by your professor.
