The IWU London Program offers students a unique study abroad experience. Under the
leadership of an IWU faculty director, students live and study in London for the fall
Rather than joining another college, participants will take courses from faculty who
are specialists in their knowledge of London as well as in their academic fields.
Because all courses have been pre-approved by the IWU faculty, students do not have
to arrange to transfer credits or worry about whether they will meet graduation requirements.
Each course carries General Education credit toward the IWU degree. Courses that may
be offered include
Concepts of Kingship (Intellectual Traditions)
Shakespeare and Others in London (Literature)
The European Union, London: World City (Contemporary Social Institutions)
Landscape Painting in Western Art (Fine Art)
A History of Twentieth Century Art (Fine Art)
London: World City (Contemporary Social Institutions)
Each course is designed to take advantage of London's vast cultural resources. Art
history courses, for example, are taught in London's museums and galleries, including
the National Gallery, the Tate museums, and smaller private museums throughout the
city. Visits to the Houses of Parliament give students first-hand experience in how
monarchy and democracy have operated in England. Theaters, concerts, and trips to
historic houses will aid in the study of Shakespeare or the fine arts.
Weekends in London bring you opportunities to wander through one of London's famous
markets or to browse through a special collection in the British Museum or the Victoria
and Albert Museum.
