London (Humanities & Arts)
 


Location



Newsweek has dubbed London “the coolest city on the planet.” It is home to some of the world’s most vibrant theatre and music, outstanding museums, and ambitious architecture. 

Once the center of an empire, London today is the political, economic, and media hub of the British Isles, with an influence that continues to radiate well beyond its borders. A designated long weekend makes possible travel to Scotland, Wales, or Ireland; students may also plan shorter trips to places such as Oxford or Canterbury.



Projects



The London Humanities & Arts program is interdisciplinary in scope and intended for students with a background in a variety of areas in the humanities and arts. Students will study, with a WPI advisor, topics that might include the history, literature, music, theatre, or culture of Britain and Europe. 

Students also complete individual projects on a theme that can draw on the unique resources of London, such as  Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Imperial War Museum, the Science Museum, and much more. As an interdisciplinary program, humanities and arts topics are not limited to the history or literature of London, but all of the projects take advantage of the city. 

The London humanities and arts program is appropriate for students interested in art history and architecture, drama and theatre, history, literature, music, philosophy, religion, or writing and rhetoric. Humanities and arts minors and MQP team members may participate at the discretion of the professor advising in London during the term.
