2021 Program  

Please note that Summer in London courses are not available remotely this summer. We hope you will be able to join our program in a future year. Other NYU ARTH-UA, ENGL-UA and POL-UA courses are available during the summer term, and you may review offerings and register directly through Albert.

Program Summary

CAS Summer in 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.

"Interesting. Engaging. Exceptionally well prepared. I got to know London, and I've met new friends."

Academics

Classes are held at the NYU Center in Bedford Square. This Bloomsbury location-a stone's throw from the British Museum and within walking distance of nearly everything else in central London-makes NYU Summer in London a program of distinction whose diversity offers students in all disciplines the opportunity for immersion in the British academic world and the vibrant culture of London. This fully restored air-conditioned academic center offers classroom space overlooking the gardens of Bedford Square. In addition to two computer rooms, audio-visual facilities, a library, and study lounges, the NYU academic center houses the program's faculty offices and advisement staff. The NYU academic center at Bedford Square offers an unparalleled summer experience just minutes from the Tottenham Court Road Tube Station, Oxford Street, and Soho Square.
