The University of New Hampshire is proud to sponsor its thirty-eighth annual faculty-led summer program in the UK at the University of Cambridge. The program will be accommodated at Gonville and Caius College, one of the oldest and best known of the thirty-one colleges that make up Cambridge University. Students stay at the college from July 3 – August 12, 2016, and choose from a series of courses taught by a distinguished British and American faculty.
This summer, our program will offer the following five courses, of which students choose two. All courses are also able to be taught at the graduate level (graduate students typically enroll in one course). Please keep in mind that a 400-level course at UNH is the equivalent of a 100-level course at most institutions, and so on:
History 498: Apocalypse of War: World War I and the Making of the Modern World
Dr. Nicoletta Gullace, University of New Hampshire
English 511: The Tudors: Sex, Politics, and Literature at the Courts of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I
Dr. Dennis Britton, University of New Hampshire
English 758: Shakespeare: Performance and Interpretation
Dr. Paul Hartle, University of Cambridge
English 797H: Modernist Fiction: James Joyce’s Ulysses
Dr. Roderick Mengham, University of Cambridge
English 711: Specimens of Victorian Literature
Dr. Michael Hurley, University of New Hampshire

In addition to taking courses, students will travel on program excursions to London, Dover, Ely Cathedral, and Stratford-Upon-Avon, and to Edinburgh, Scotland on an optional bonus weekend. The program also provides tickets to three Shakespeare performances: one at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, and two at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The program fee covers tuition for two courses, breakfast daily and dinner Sunday through Thursday, private room, transportation and entry fees on program-sponsored excursions, tickets and transportation for at least two of Shakespeare’s plays, and special events. See the “Fees” section of the website for more information.
The program is open to all second-, third-, and fourth-year undergraduates with a minimum GPA of 2.50; all graduate students with a minimum GPA of 2.50; and a limited number of first-year students with exceptional records. Application instructions and materials can be downloaded in the “Apply” section of the website.
