Virginia Program at Oxford

The Virginia Program at Oxford is an interdisciplinary summer school program based in St. Anne's College, Oxford University. The six-week program, which is open to students of any major after their first year, examines the history and literature of Renaissance England. Instruction follows the English system of higher education, combining daily lectures by renowned, British scholars with small, weekly tutorials. Students, drawn from a six-school consortium of small Virginia colleges and universities, earn three credits in history and three credits in English.
