Academics

Students who attend the London Center come to realize that the London classroom is the city itself, as valuable course-related resources are scattered throughout the metropolis.

Our unique curriculum combines courses of contemporary relevance with a British approach to teaching and British expectations about learning. Students choose courses from both a “cultural core” of music, theatre, literature, and art history and a “contemporary core” that includes business, communications, history, politics, sociology, and sport studies. In addition, multiple courses are available to satisfy Integrative Core Curriculum requirements across several different themes.  

Furthermore, students have the unique opportunity to enroll in classes that take full advantage of the city’s cultural and historical resources. Some classes visit art and history museums throughout the city, attend theatre performances in London’s theatre district (as well as those off the beaten track), and go on field trips to some of London’s famous sporting venues.
