PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Oxford Program is an academically rigorous and enjoyable study abroad experience. Students take two academic courses taught by LMU professors and enjoy guest lectures by Oxford University professor of history Angus Hawkins.  By the end of the program, students will be knowledgeable about the course materials, Oxford, and England.


LOCATION

Oxford is one of the most well-known cities in the world. It is the city of spires and towers, where Richard the Lionheart was born and King Henry V was educated. While Oxford is known primarily for the university, it is also a busy commercial and industrial city of 115,000, with shops and markets, gardens, restaurants, theaters, and pubs.  Oxford is one hour northwest of London, with easy access to London via bus or train.

The University of Oxford is the oldest and one of the finest universities in the English-speaking world. Its origins date to the 11th century. For eight centuries, this university has been an international center for teaching and scholarship. The Queen's College, where the LMU program is housed, is one of the oldest constituent colleges of the university having received its charter in 1341. Throughout its history, Oxford has provided an intellectual training ground for men and women who have gone on to shape history.

ACADEMICS (SUMMER 2019)

Students are required to enroll in both of the following courses:

CMST 3998 Sport and the Global Community
Prof. Shaun Anderson
3 units

This course explores the international relations and global politics of sport as it pertains to the intersections of American and European sport. From the Olympics to American football, this course explores how cultural, political, social, economic, and communicative factors intertwine to influence global communities, particularly in Oxford and the united Kingdom.

PHIL 3330 Philosophy & Literature (British Lit.)
Prof. Rachel Waterstradt
4 units

Philosophy of Literature is, "An investigation of the philosophical use of literature and an examination of philosophical ideas portrayed in a variety of literary works, which may include plays, novels, autobiographies, and short stories." Since this is the Oxford program, this course will emphasize two of the greatest, most revered authors of the 20th century, both of whom lived and taught in Oxford: C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. These friends worked alongside one another, often speaking specifically about the key ethical, moral and philosophical issues in their works. We will focus on these issues and how fiction reveals, reinforces and upholds the values and ideals of and for culture and society, both for Britain - then and now - and beyond.
