Tudors of England

Travel to London for a two-week vivid travel and learning experience with Dr. Engle. The Tudors of England course will be offered as a summer I course with the first four weeks on campus, so no need to take the summer or semester off work. The on-campus portion of the course will introduce you to all things English and Tudor. 

Then it’s off to England for two weeks to see the sights learned about in the classroom.

The program is only open to Honors College students, Summer I. Travel dates are May 30 - June 9, 2022.

Where you
will be

In London the students and professor will be housed at the Imperial College's dormitory rooms in Kensington. Full English breakfasts are included. Students will be responsible for other meals in London. With Imperial College as home base, the class will be within walking distance from tube stations and in close proximity to all things Tudor: St. James Palace, Lambeth Palace, Westminster and Whitehall. Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle are a short train ride away as well.

What you
will learn

The first half of the Tudor England course on campus through lectures and reading will provide historical background of the Tudor monarchy that enables understanding and analysis of the cultural development of England. The second portion of this course, two weeks in England, is designed to provide a vivid travel experience with immersion in English culture and encourages analysis of England's cultural development. Journaling and daily meetings will guide this understanding and analysis.

What to

Bring layered travel clothing: England in June is most likely mild and rainy, or hot and dry. You'll want to be prepared for all types of weather. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, as is an umbrella and all bathroom necessities. Our rooms will have all linens and pillows provided.


Students will register for the class through the Honor's College. There are no pre-requisites. Register for the trip and make deposits. Students must have a current passport.
