The Virginia Program at Oxford is a Hampden-Sydney sponsored, interdisciplinary summer school program based in St. Anne's College, Oxford University. The six-week program examines the literature, history and society of late-16th and early-17th century England. Instruction follows the English system of higher education, which combines daily lectures by renowned, British scholars with small, weekly tutorials. Students, drawn from a six-school consortium of small Virginia colleges and universities, earn three credits in history and three credits in English. Unlike many other study abroad programs, credits for these courses are entered directly onto your transcript and the grades are calculated into your GPA. Some financial aid is available, and federal grants and loans may be applied.
Students from all years and majors are encouraged to apply.
