70 Students Study Abroad in Nebraska at Oxford Program

70 Students Study Abroad in Nebraska at Oxford Program
University of Oxford
Seventy University of Nebraska–Lincoln students are participating in the 29th annual Nebraska at Oxford program July 16-August 12. Sponsored by the 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 Dr. Kathy Farrell, interim dean and State Farm Professor of Finance. “Our students gain a competitive edge in the job market by having the opportunity to study at this prestigious university. We also know from the program’s alumni that it provides 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.
Anne Greff, a junior economics major from Lincoln, Nebraska, is sharing her Nebraska at Oxford experience through a blog for the College of Business. Greff chose to apply for the Nebraska at Oxford program because it enables her to complete six economics credit hours while exploring and familiarizing herself with English culture.
Greff said, “I'm most excited to get to explore new places with new friends. Traveling in a new country is the perfect opportunity to bond with people and get to know them.”
