Nebraska at Oxford Program Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Seventy University of Nebraska–Lincoln students participated in the 25th annual Nebraska at Oxford Program July 21-August 17 at the University of Oxford in Oxford, England, the oldest university in the English-speaking world.

Sponsored by the UNL College of Business Administration, the program is open to students of all academic majors, including undergraduate students with at least sophomore standing.

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 Oxford University.

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

Senior management major Steven Craig, from Hartington, Neb., blogged about his experiences during the trip to give a first-hand account of all the adventures available to students.
