CRANDALL OXFORD STUDIES PROGRAM
As an associate student of Regent Park College, Oxford University, you'll study in Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, London, and the historic and beautiful Cotswold area. Students who take part in the programme live in homestays in Charlbury, a quaint Cotswold town in south west England and commute via the British Rail system to Oxford. As an associate student in Oxford, you will have the privilege of studying in the Bodleian Library, one of the oldest libraries in Europe and closed to the general public.
As part of the program, you will have the chance to visit many places of historical and cultural significance. In the past, the program has taken students to Warwick Castle, Stonehenge, Stratford-Upon-Avon, London, Tewkesbury Cathedral, Bath, and many more exciting sites.
Crandall Oxford program is designed for students in their third or fourth year, and particularly those who are majoring in English, History, Religion and Theology, or Theatre Arts, though other students may also find ways to make the courses fit with their degree requirements.
Participating Redeemer students are registered as students of Crandall University and associate students with Regent’s Park College of Oxford University. The program provides students with four or five three-credit courses towards their Redeemer degree. Course offerings are organized on a two-year cycle, with one year emphasizing Shakespearean theatre and related literature, and the next year emphasizing history and non-dramatic literature.
Visits to theatrical productions, museums, galleries, and historical sites around England provide an excellent context for material covered in classes, while a wide variety of professors and professionals teach their specialties in the classroom.
You need a minimum CGPA of 7.0 to be considered for this program, along with recommendations from two faculty members. The application deadline for the Crandall-Oxford Programme is April 1.
