71 UNL students to study abroad in Nebraska at Oxford program

Maddie Stuart, a junior advertising and public relations major and business minor from Lincoln, will blog about her experiences in the Nebraska at Oxford program.

Seventy-one University of Nebraska-Lincoln students will participate in the 28th annual Nebraska at Oxford program July 17 through Aug. 13.

Sponsored by the UNL College of Business Administration, the study abroad program provides four weeks of courses at the University of Oxford in England, the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Nebraska at Oxford is the university’s most popular study abroad program, with more than 1,700 alumni who now live in 39 states and 10 countries.

“The Nebraska at Oxford program is the premiere study abroad program offered at the university because of our relationship with the faculty and staff at Oxford,” said Donde Plowman, dean of the College of Business Administration. “To be able to give our students the opportunity to study at this prestigious university gives our students a competitive edge in the job market and an experience they will never forget.”

The program is open to undergraduate students of all academic majors with a minimum 2.5 GPA. Business students take two lecture-tutorial courses on British political and international economic policy called Political Economy of Britain Since 1945 and International Economics, for six hours of UNL academic credit. Non-business students can enroll in the course Shakespeare’s Dramatic Arts rather than International Economics. Lecturers for the courses are world-renowned faculty from the University of Oxford.

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.

Maddie Stuart, a junior advertising and public relations major and business minor from Lincoln, will share her Nebraska at Oxford experience for CBA. Stuart is following in the footsteps of her father Lee Stuart, who studied abroad at Oxford in the program’s first class in 1991.

“I grew up hearing tales of my dad’s adventures as he traveled around with friends before studying at Oxford, and I always knew I would go on the same trip,” she said. “I am so grateful to study at the oldest university in the English-speaking world, and it is the perfect time to study the politics and economy of Great Britain given recent events such as Brexit.”

The CBA website is hosting Stuart’s blog on her experiences here.
