Program Description:
LMU Semester in London

Loyola Marymount University's London Study & Internship Program offers students a wonderful opportunity to live, study, and work in London. Faculty from LMU and noted faculty from Oxford, Cambridge, and other major universities in Britain, teach a wide variety of academic courses. The internship and courses are facilitated by the Foundation for International Education. FIE offers guest lectures by London-based experts in the fields of politics, business, and the arts. Additionally, students can participate in co-curricular activities. By the end of the program, students should become more mature and aware global citizens.

London 2015 Student Group

London, one of the great cities of the world, offers a thriving multicultural environment with cutting-edge music, art, and fashion. London -- and the whole of England -- is experiencing rapid and exciting changes in its identity and in its relationship with Europe and the rest of the world. Politically and economically, it is a fascinating time to be in England.

THST 3998 The Radical Bible in English Christianity         
This course will focus on the uses of the Bible in English radical movements of the 17th and 18th Centuries, drawing on groups like the Diggers, the Levellers, and the Quakers, but moving toward social movements in the 19th and 20th Centuries like the Wesleyan radicals within Methodism, the English Tolstoyans and the continued legacy of Quaker radicalism. 

THST 3998 TEXT IN CONTEXT: Cross-Cultural Interpretation Of the Bible (Old Testament)

Faith and Reason Core & Engaged Learning Flag

This will be an experimental course examining the issue of cross-cultural interpretation of the Bible, focusing mainly on the Old Testament. There will be two main sections of the course – the theory and practice of cross-cultural interpretation of the Bible, making use of some important recent books on the topic – and then a “practicum” that consists of visits to parish groups to discuss cross-cultural thoughts on Biblical passages.

Shortly after committing to the program and absolutely no later than 5-weeks prior to the program start date, students will be required to apply for a UK Point-based Tier 4 (General) student visa. The application process can be complex, and it takes time for the visa to be issued. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you use a visa agency for an additional $200-300 to avoid any complications. For U.S. passport holders, the cost is £322 GBP (Approx. $484 USD), plus an additional $170 to expedite the process if needed. These visa fees are subject to change by the UK Embassy.

Students with visas should not attempt to enter the UK before the validity date on the visa. The valid from date is usually seven days before and seven days after the program. UK Visas & Immigration can refuse entry to students who try to enter earlier than this date and compel them to return to their country of origin.

For more detailed visa information, please visit FIE's website.
