Program Description:

This distinguished academic program offers the opportunity to study modern British culture at England's oldest and one of its most venerable universities. The course of study, organized and taught by members of the Oxford faculty, uses the tutorial method, the unique style of instruction that is the central feature of an Oxford education. The program is organized by Oxford's Department of Continuing Education in conjunction with Trinity College of Arts and Sciences of Duke University. Dr. Michael Gillespie, Duke University, and Dr. David Grylls, University of Oxford, co-direct the program.

Students attend seminar meetings and engage each week in small intimate meetings with their tutor as an integral feature of this academic program. Students have access to the Bodleian Library, a most distinguished library, as well as other university libraries. Five guest lectures will be given by academic staff of the University of Oxford and by experts from outside the University. Participants may meet the speaker at the reception before the Guest Night Dinner; students will be invited to join the school staff, the guest lecturer and other guests at High Table.
