Kiplin Hall Trip

During the three-week Kiplin Hall program, students attend lectures each morning and participate in field excursions in the afternoons.

Sites of significant historic, literary, landscape, and architectural interest are part of the field experience. Students have an opportunity to explore areas where Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, and other influential literary figures found so much inspiration. The Ernest A. Howard Professor of English Literature, Richard Gillin, serves as the program’s accompanying Washington College faculty director and teaches all classes in English.

The comprehensive program fee covers the cost of round-trip airfare from the U.S. point of departure to England, all ground transportation within England, all meals and lodging for the duration of the trip, all entrance fees to various sites and museums, and all costs of various scheduled activities. The program fee does not include the cost of health insurance, inoculations, accident or major medical insurance, or personal expenses.

Approximate seminar dates are from mid-June to mid-July.
