Program Summary 

In this virtual program, we will examine the ways in which London’s rich immigrant history has contributed to its distinctive cuisine and lively street culture. We will also examine the incredible museums that owe so much to British colonialism and empire. We will experience live performances of opera and dance. Theatre, perhaps the best-known part of London life to people all over the world, will also be included in our virtual tours. Finally, we will invite experts in various fields to talk to us about their careers and life and work in London. Students will be able to gain a Global Agility Badge for their LinkedIn pages (see https://apiabroad.com/badges/ for more info) as they develop global workplace competencies.

Why I Studied Abroad

"Only one percent of college students study abroad, and I'm so glad that I chose to be one of them. Studying abroad in London was a dream come true, and being able to support my expectations with some firsthand experience was both a challenge and a reward. If you're truly prepared to immerse yourself in another culture and ingest what it has to offer, it will change you - for the better. I highly recommend that you take the plunge!"

-Kirsten O'Brien, 2016

Program Course/s

 

HSS 350: London Life and Culture (3 units) [GE – C.3 & Z]
Course Enrollment Code - 11381

In this class we will explore various aspects of London life and culture. In particular, we will be attentive to the deep history of multicultural London, a city where over 300 languages are spoken today. While this may sound familiar to Southern Californians, we will find London’s multicultural world to be quite different to our own. The class will consist of a program of synchronous visits from experts and tours (such as a street art tour), virtual tickets to live performances, and asynchronous exploration of the riches London has to offer the student visitor. We will also have a virtual pub quiz (a fun tradition of London life), scavenger hunts, and cooking demonstrations.
