Humanities and Arts Requirement (HUA)

Newsweek has dubbed London “the coolest city on the planet.” It is home to some of the world’s most vibrant theater and music, outstanding museums, and ambitious architecture. London was once the center of an empire, and today it is the political, economic and media hub of the British Isles, with an influence that continues to radiate well beyond its borders. Many interesting cities (e.g., Bath, Brighton, Oxford) and tourist attractions (e.g., Stonehenge) are within easy reach, and a designated long weekend allows students to travel further afield in the UK and the rest of Europe.


The London Humanities & Arts program is interdisciplinary in scope and intended for students with a background in a variety of areas in the humanities and arts. Students will study, with a Humanities and Arts professor, topics that might include the history, literature, music, theatre, or culture of Britain and Europe. Before the start of the program, students must have already completed any 3 HUA courses (including AP credits). The 'depth and breadth' policy for satisfying the HUA requirement is waived for participants in this program.

Students complete three (1/3 credit) courses in London: HU2910 Experiential Learning, INTL 2910 Topics in Global Studies, and HU3900 Inquiry Seminar.  In completing their academic work in this program, students draw on the unique resources of London, such as Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Imperial War Museum, the Science Museum, and much more.
