Overview

London Experience Brochure
The Honors College London Experience is a unique opportunity for current and incoming first-year students to take part in a short-term study abroad program. You'll be able to earn OSU and honors credits, work closely with honors faculty, and build friendships with other honors students. Through classes and activities around the city, you'll learn about London in the different time periods and from a variety of perspectives with faculty in liberal arts, science, and engineering!
 

Areas of Study

All students take ENG 204H Survey of British Literature: Beginnings to 1660 (satisfies baccalaureate core requirements for Literature & the Arts or Western Culture) with Professors Rebecca Olson and Tara Williams. This survey course, team-taught by specialists of the medieval and early modern periods, covers over a thousand years of English literature: with London as our classroom, we will take a hands-on approach to history as we discuss works by authors including Geoffrey Chaucer, Julian of Norwich, William Shakespeare, and John Donne.

Students also take one of the following two courses:

HC 407 Natural Hazards Engineering (counts towards Honors College colloquium requirement) taught by Professor Ben Mason. A discussion-based colloquium focused on natural hazards and more specifically, what we can learn in London and then do in Oregon to protect ourselves from impending hazards.

HC 407 Isaac Newton: Opticks, Colour, Gravity, and Navigation (counts towards Honors College colloquium requirement) taught by Professor David McIntyre. Through discussions, activities, and field trips, this colloquium blends history, science, geometry, and art to investigate Sir Isaac Newton's scientific discoveries and his impact on physics, astronomy, mathematics, and navigation.
 

Requirements

This program is designed for Honors College students; students who are not enrolled in the Honors College but have at least a 3.25 cumulative OSU GPA are also eligible to apply.
