NYU London offers courses in British literature, art and architecture, Shakespeare in performance, and contemporary English politics. These courses are all advanced electives that will normally count for the major in their respective fields. We take bus and walking tours of London as well as a group excursion to Brighton. Actors come to our theatre classes and members of Parliament to our politics class. Fieldwork and guided excursions are incorporated into other classes as well: architectural tours and museum visits, historical walking tours of literary districts, and visits to Parliament.
