Short-Term Programs

CAPA short-term and accelerated programs are a great study abroad option if you are concerned about cost or time constraints.

When I explored London for the first time, I instantly knew that it was the place for me. I matured so much and learned so much about myself that it made all the effort worthwhile. I can safely say that it was the best semester of my college life.

The main aim will be to enable students to think independently about this topic. It will compare British and American experiences of popular culture, the differences, similarities and cross-influences.



Travel Writing (short-term)  

This course is designed to offer students the opportunity to study and practice the art of travel writing. There are a variety of readings, many of them focused on London and its environs, and most, but not all, from contemporary travel writers.
