Honors in the United Kingdom
Each summer, usually in May or June, a faculty director and a group of 10 to 12 students travel to the U.K. for a summer course offering colloquium credit.

Recently, the colloquium has used the works of Lewis Carroll and J. K. Rowling to explore points of contact between scientific discovery and the cleverness and wit pervasive in British culture. The course includes periods of residence in Oxford, London, Llandudno (Wales), and Edinburgh, with an additional stop in Dublin, Ireland, on the way home.

Through advance readings, directed and undirected investigations, journals, discussion, and a final reflection paper, you develop fresh perspectives on the society, culture, and heritage reflected in the novels of Carroll and Rowling.
