Program Description

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Please note that applications are due by 10 pm on March 15!


Students enroll in the following two courses:

ENGL 350: Jane Austen (3 cr.)
ENGL 362: 18th Century Country and City (3 cr.)


Together these two courses, ENGL 350 and ENGL 362, will focus on the novels of Jane Austen, and the social and cultural milieu of her lifetime. Although students will read all the novels of Austen (as well as some secondary material) and complete a number of threaded discusssions on OAKS before traveling, we will spend an hour each day discussing the works and their connections to the places we are visiting. We will visit places Austen lived and about which she wrote, as well as visit sites that help to round out our sense of her world--ruins, great houses, churches, theatres, shops, etc., including walks in the city and country. Course requirements include a researched argumentative essay, a travel journal, and online discussion thread.

Students should expect some walking uphill and some pleasant walks in the country.
