Program Description:

Program OverviewGEO_London

Building on a quarter-century of academic excellence, the London Centre offers multi-disciplinary courses in the liberal arts and humanities with an emphasis on experiential learning supplemented by local outings and excursions. Internship placements are also available to qualified students who are committed to gaining a unique perspective into British life. The internship placement contains both the practical element of working in the organization and a reflective element through the accompanying Internship Seminar. In addition to the internship placement, you will enroll in two to three other GEO courses. If you plan to enroll in an internship placement you will need to be flexible and committed to the internship schedule and responsibilities entailed from both a professional and personal standpoint. Because of the time commitment required, you may sometimes have to forgo a program activity, excursion, or personal weekend away in order to fulfill your responsibilities to the organization. PLEASE NOTE: Visa is required for internship students.

Internship Details

You will enroll in two to four courses in addition to the Internship Seminar and placement. All courses offered in London are recognized and approved for academic credit by various GEO partner institutions. 

In your internship placement, you will work side by side with British nationals, allowing you a unique insight into the professional life of Londoners. You will be expected to dress and conduct yourself appropriately to the standards of the placement organization. In placing students, GEO will try to ensure that you will have a variety of challenging tasks throughout your term; however, you should also expect to help in menial office tasks as well. 

London will serve as a classroom as much as the center itself, with visits to London’s exceptional museums, galleries, and the House of Commons. In addition, you will enjoy theater and concert productions often complemented by private talks with directors or prominent actors. Courses are taught by British faculty who have experience teaching US students as well as considerable practical experience in the related field they are teaching—including professional actors, artists and the founder of the European Policy Information Centre. Courses make use of a variety of materials and texts, all of which are included in the program fee.
