The Citadel Summer in London Program
The Citadel Summer in London Program is a six-week program that offers a range of international cultural experiences and courses unavailable to students at their home institutions. Students take two courses and earn six credits. The program draws students from other colleges and universities in addition to The Citadel, and there is no military or uniform component. (In other words, the program is just like a regular civilian college program, but even better because it's in London!)
Students take two of the following three courses: Understanding Civilizations: Islam and the West (PSCI 433/HIST 365), Major British Authors II: Romanticism to the Present (ENGL 202), and Film Studies: Britain and Empire (ENGL 401). All courses are officially Citadel courses, which means they count toward Citadel major requirements, count toward Citadel graduation requirements, and count toward a student's Citadel G.P.A. Students from other colleges and universities can easily transfer credits to their home institutions. Citadel students can use ENGL 202 to fulfill a core course requirement and Citadel students who are not Poltical Science majors, History majors, or English majors can still earn general elective credits for Islam and the West and/or Film Studies: War and Social Conflict instead of taking another general elective such as Art Appreciation or Music Appreciation on campus at The Citadel.
All courses take full advantage of England's cultural resources by including learning activities such as literary London tours; tours of Muslim areas and Islamic cultural sites; a guided tour of Parliament; a backstage tour of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre; trips to Stonehenge, the Lake District of England, and the ancient Roman city of Bath; optional weekend trips to other European countries (including Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy).
Because London is the largest city in Europe, extracurricular activities such as attending live music performances (from small club shows to huge outdoor concerts); attending theater performances (London is widely regarded as the theater capital of the world); attending screenings of a wide range of movies (London's film scene is excellent, and it's not unusual for films to premiere in London months or even years before they make it to America); visiting amazing museums (admission to all public museums, including world-class facilities such as the British Museum and the National Gallery, is free thanks to the British government); and attending sports events (in 2009 students attended a World Cup qualifying game for England's national soccer team at Wembley Stadium and in the past students have attended the Wimbledon tennis tournament, for example) are widely available.
