CLA London Brochure
In this program, we will have the unique opportunity to explore London as our classroom, visiting historical and cultural sites in a program that will allow students to both dive into London stories and to study the city's long history of crime and punishment.

Areas of Study

LA 399: 1000 Years of Crime and Punishment (3 credits)
Instructor: Michelle Inderbitzin

In this class, we will explore the long and fascinating history of crime and punishment in England using London as our classroom. As part of the course, we will walk the streets that Jack the Ripper walked, stand on the ground where public executions took place, tour the infamous Tower of London, and visit Anne Boleyn’s final resting place. We will spend an afternoon in a working courtroom in the Royal Courts of Justice re-enacting a criminal case out of history with students playing the roles of judge, jury, attorneys, defendant, and witnesses; we will sit in on a criminal trial at the Old Bailey criminal court; and we will get a behind the scenes look into the UK’s Supreme Court.  Finally, we’ll learn about the infamous Newgate Prison while visiting the Clink Prison Museum, and we’ll enjoy a fine-dining lunch prepared and served by current prisoners in a job training program in a London-area prison.

This experiential learning course has been designed with the baccalaureate core outcomes and criteria of Social Processes and Institutions, Contemporary Global Issues, and Western Culture. 
LA 399: London Stories (3 credits)
Instructor: Susan Rodgers

In this class, we will read and discuss stories and essays about London, visit sites related to the readings, and write brief responses, reviews, and reflections.  Our excursions will offer a wide range of London experiences.  We’ll visit an open-air market and an iconic department store; take in tourist attractions and off-the-beaten-path neighborhoods; look at art from centuries ago, and from last year; have “high tea” and a food truck lunch; see a play in the West End and buskers in Covent Garden; and soak up the rich and diverse mix of cultures that make up this vibrant, exciting city. 

Bring comfortable shoes, a portable notebook, and a camera—London is our classroom!


This program is open to all majors and can be used to satisfy baccalaureate core requirements.
