William & Mary’s long-standing summer program in Cambridge, England, is housed in beautiful and historic Christ’s College, one of 31 colleges that comprise the University of Cambridge. Christ’s was founded in 1437 and later endowed by Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of King Henry VII. The college is located in the heart of the city of Cambridge, about an hour-long train trip from central London.
The 2013 session runs five weeks–from July 5 to August 9. Classes will generally meet from Mon-Thurs, with excursions on weekends. At least one weekend will be free, so that students who wish to can schedule their own travel. W&M students are housed in comfortable single rooms in the stately 18C court of the college. The program price will include breakfast and partial supplements for other meals.
There is a required 1 credit course to be taken in Spring 2013, which you will be registered for following your acceptance into the program. This course is specifically designed for students going on the summer program and is intended to enhance cross-cultural understanding of Cambridge and cover a variety of pre-departure questions. The scheduling of this course will be dependent on the class times possible for the program participants.
This year’s faculty hail from various disciplines at W&M: Anthropology Professor Kathleen Bragdon, Assistant Professor of Philosophy Neal Tognazzini, and Professor of Kinesiology & Health Sciences Ken Kambis. In addition to hosting several information meetings scheduled for fall term, they will be available in Fall and Spring terms to assist individual students interested in the Cambridge program.
