England: London Semester
This Program will not be offered in Fall 2010
The Washington College in London Semester Program is a joint venture between Washington College and the University of Delaware based in the Bloomsbury District of London.
London, one of the world’s most extraordinary, cultured, inspiring, and cosmopolitan cities, from an American perspective, also one of the most inviting, accessible, delightful and convenient. Transportation is not a problem as London has a superb subway system for local travel. Due to its prime location, London also offers easy access to airline routes, rail links and motorways to other areas, such as Scotland, Wales, or the Lake District and beyond.
London provides many reasons to stay within its confines, drawing visitors to its museums, art galleries, parks, many different types of restaurants, shops, and pubs. London, home to the Royal Shakespeare Company, the charming Convent Garden, London Philharmonic and the Royal Ballet, offers a wide variety of experiences.
Classes will be taught by adjunct faculty, and periodically by a faculty director from Washington College. Student advising wil be done by the Resident Director.
