INT 101 - Intercultural Communication (3 credit hours)

This course focuses on the field of intercultural communication. The essential feature of the course is a presentation of the socio-psychological aspects of interaction among peoples who hold different values and assumptions. Subjects examined include variations and similarities in communication across cultures; the role of beliefs, customs, values, and norms in intercultural communication; and the interrelationships of society, culture, language and communication. (Taught by Dr. Derek Mace)

MAT 089 - The Art of Mathematics (3 credit hours) 

The study of mathematics necessitates that we also approach it as an art. Mathematicians explore the relationships between numbers and figures and develop techniques that help us understand these relationships. This is done much in the same way a musician explores music and then composes their own. We will study a variety of mathematical topics, such as number theory, set theory, geometry, patterns and number systems, using the city of London as our vehicle for study. We will dig into the mathematics of English mathematicians such as Lewis Carroll, Ada Lovelace, Isaac Newton, John Venn, Eugenia Cheng, and Ian Stewart. (Taught by Professor Karise Mace)

Students may take only one course. Upon successful completion of the requirements of the course, three semester hours credit will be earned. A letter grade will be given and no "Incompletes" will be issued.

London is a global center of art and commerce and a truly multi-cultural city.  The diversity of culture in London is evidenced by the estimated 100-plus languages spoken.  Our home base will be the Central London neighborhood Bloomsbury, located just north of the city center.

We will stay in student dormitories near the center of London. 

Classes, Study Sites and Excursions:
Classes will be held each day, using both formal and informal classroom settings. Informal settings include destinations such as the Tower of London, the British Museum, Buckingham Castle, and Westminster Abbey.  Class-related excursions (limited to the available budget) outside of London may include Salisbury, Oxford, and Edinburgh. Lastly, students will also have free time for independent travel.
