Description of program: For 18 years the College of Family and Consumer Sciences has coordinated with the American Institute for Foreign Study, Inc., (AIFS) to provide an exciting academic experience in London. While all students participate in the course “British Life and Culture” for three semester hours of credit; students also add to their experience by either working as an intern or taking other courses offered by the program director. All academic majors are welcome to apply for the London program.
While studying in London, students will experience:
- The excitement of living in an international city while earning college credits.
- The richness of London’s museums, theatre, fashion, business, and financial districts.
- Explore the land of Shakespeare and Dickens and ride the appealing double-decker buses.
