Overview

UGA Study Abroad England and Scotland: Cambridge University, London, Stonehenge, Mendip, Peak District, Lake District, Loch Ness, and Edinburgh

Britain, a country with a history and influence that once spread across the World and for whom it was said that The sun never sets on the Empire, plays a very different role in global politics than it did two hundred years ago. Nevertheless, it is home to over 60 million people with the sixth largest economy in the world and remains a place where music, sport, and fashion headline the world.

We begin our program with a week in the historic college town of Cambridge, England where we take classes at the prestigious Cambridge University. This is followed by a two and one-half week educational tour of London (including the Houses of Parliament), Stonehenge (considered the world’s most famous prehistoric monument), Mendip Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), the Peak District (Britain’s first national park), Lake District (arguably the most well-known British national park), Loch Ness (and the Highlands of Scotland) and Edinburgh (including the castle) to explore the issue of sustainability from the perspective of human – environment relations across time. The program is mostly travel-based, experiential and field-oriented and allows you to draw upon your own backgrounds to understand the political, economic, social, and environmental dimensions of sustainability using an integrated perspective.

The program is open to all students from UGA and from other institutions (non-UGA students pay in-state tuition), and no prior knowledge is assumed. Anyone interested in British history, culture, natural history, education, and the arts are particularly encouraged to apply.

Program cost includes all accommodations, field excursions, cultural events, insurance, in-country ground transportation, and some meals. Tuition (HOPE applies and out-of-state or non-UGA students pay in-state tuition) and airfare are additional. You can book your flight independently (arrive into London no later than 10:00am on July 6, 2018) or through STA Travel (the UGA-dedicated line is 1.800.665.5886). We also strongly recommend purchasing trip cancellation insurance for airline tickets.

Out-of-state students will receive an out-of-state tuition waiver (i.e. tuition for participation will be charged at the in-state level) for study abroad courses.
