KC and Stephen F. Austin State University are joining to give students the opportunity to study abroad this summer in London, England. Students will spend four weeks in June in England living in Harrow Hall, a residence of Westminster University, and will be 20 minutes away form Central London.

Students must register for two classes, six credit hours, to participate in the study abroad program. For each course taken, participants will have two regular lecture classes each week on Westminster University’s campus and one full-day field trip. Field trips will depend on the class.

KC classes for credit will be art history, ARTS 1303 and 1304, taught by Carolyn Fox-Hearne. Classes taught through SFA include interpersonal and intercultural communications, English classes over literary and Arthurian England, United States to 1877 and American architectural history courses, media writing and meet the media in London mass communication classes, as well as introduction to philosophy and the philosophy in Harry Potter.

The tentative cost for studying abroad in London is $5,250 and includes international airfare, airport transfers, accommodations, special welcome and departure dinners, local transportation for field trips, health insurance and a six-zone pass for the London Tube.

The cost does not include tuition and fees for the courses, application and passport fees, meals, personal expenses and transportation to and from the Houston airport.

Students interested in participating in the study should fill out an application this fall and begin making payments by Dec. 10.
