2014 British Studies Program

June 26 - July 27, 2014

British Studies

General Background

Welcome to British Studies. Your world for 4 nonstop weeks. You are living and learning in London, a city of 8 million people from every corner of the world. Your courses have a British accent, and so do many of your instructors. As an undergrad or a graduate student, you’re researching a topic of your choice, in institutions few Americans ever have a chance to visit. Soon you’ll be off with your class doing field research for 4 days in Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, or wherever your professor and your class lead you.


Classes and Credit Hours

You will be able to select from a wide variety of classes in the areas of Art, Business, English, History, Interior Design & Geography, Mass Communication, Library Science, Music Industry, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Sport Management. Based on a total of 6 credit hours for a given class, 3 credit hours are satisfied through lectures taught by eminent British scholars, artists, business leaders or government officials, and field excursions and seminars led by American professors. The remaining 3 credit hours are satisfied by supervised research. Awarded by the University of Southern Mississippi, the courses and 6 credit hours transfer to any university or college in the USA.



Your investment in British Studies will pay you back a lifetime’s worth of professional and personal dividends. The 2014 program costs $7,399 for undergraduate credit and $7,599 for graduate credit. Additionally, most students spend an extra $3000 on average to fund meals, weekend travel, mini break travel, supplies, and gifts.
