Nebraska at Oxford Overview

Seventy-one UNL students will participate in the 26th annual Nebraska at Oxford program July 20 to Aug. 16 at the University of Oxford in England.

Sponsored by the UNL College of Business Administration, Nebraska at Oxford celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2013. It is the university's most popular study abroad program with more than 1,700 alumni.

During the four-week program, students can take two lecture-tutorial courses on British political and international economic policy, "Political Economy of Britain Since 1945" and "International Economics," for six hours of UNL academic credit. Non-business students can enroll in "Shakespeare's Dramatic Arts" rather than "International Economics." Lecturers for the courses are faculty from the University of Oxford, which is the oldest university in the English-speaking world.

Cultural excursions supplement the course lectures and tutorials, including having high tea, attending the horse races at Sandown Park and a West End show in London, and experiencing a Royal Shakespeare Company performance in Stratford-upon-Avon.

The program is open to students of all academic majors, including undergraduate students with at least sophomore standing.
