Event Description:

Want to study in England? Love the Middle Ages? Want 6-hours of U of A course credit towards your English or History or Humanities or Medieval & Renaissance Studies requirements? Want to escape the summer heat? It’s not too late to apply!

University of Arkansas students can study all things medieval in England during the 2018 summer session 2, July 2 – August 3. Dr. William Quinn, distinguished professor of English in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of English will lead the program.

This faculty-led program offers an intensive, interdisciplinary study of the history, literature, and material culture of the Anglo-Saxon, Anglo-Norman and Middle English periods–ca. 500 c.e.-1500 c.e. The program begins with informal lectures and seminar discussions at Durham University, accompanied by numerous field trips. We then relocate briefly to York, then to London for several historical site visits (Canterbury, Dover, Hastings, etc.). The six hours credit earned by this program may also be counted towards an MRST minor, which is an excellent complementary program for all ENGL, HIST, CLST, and WLLC majors, indeed by all majors in the humanities. It is also now possible to attain the MRST minor entirely by course-work completed while studying abroad in the summers.

There will be an informational meeting about the program at 4:00 pm on Monday, January 22 in Old Main 319. Dr. Quinn will answer all questions about course work, site visits and accommodations.

Students can visit the Medieval and Renaissance Studies website or contact Dr. Quinn for details about the course requirements and schedule for the Medieval England program. Find more information about program costs, and apply online through the Hogs Abroad Portal. The deadline to apply for the 2018 Medieval England program is February 1, and scholarships are available for U of A students. For more information about the application and scholarship opportunities, students should contact the Office of Study Abroad and International Exchange.
