Seventy-one University of Nebraska–Lincoln students are participating in the 30th annual Nebraska at Oxford program July 15 through Aug. 11.
Sponsored by the university’s College of Business, the global immersion 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 1,900 alumni who now live in 39 states and 10 countries.
“The Nebraska at Oxford program is the premier study abroad program offered at the university because of our relationship with the faculty and staff at Oxford,” said Kathy Farrell, dean of the College of Business. “Our students gain a competitive edge in the job market by having the opportunity to study at this prestigious university. The program’s alumni have ensured that it provides an experience these students will never forget.”
The program is open to all undergraduate students with a minimum 2.5 GPA. Business students take two lecture-tutorial courses on British political and international economic policy for six hours of academic credit at Nebraska. Non-business students can enroll in the course Shakespeare’s Dramatic Arts. Lecturers for the courses are world-renowned faculty from the University of Oxford.
Cultural excursions supplement course lectures and tutorials, including having high tea, attending the horse races at Sandown Park, taking a boat ride on the Thames River, seeing a West End show in London and experiencing a Royal Shakespeare Company performance in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Reagan Scott, a junior management major from Lincoln, said she chose to apply for the Nebraska at Oxford program because she has long had an affinity for British culture and wanted to study at the world’s oldest English-speaking university.
“I am really looking forward to immersing myself into everyday life at Oxford,” she said. “It’s crazy to think I will actually be living in another country for four weeks, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me there.”
