CCSA offers premier courses in a variety of fascinating topics each winter and summer as well as 10-week internships.
Participants can receive higher education credit (undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education) for successfully completing the CCSA program in which they are enrolled. CCSA also offers internships in Dublin, Ireland. The classes are taught by faculty from consortium-member schools. Special non-credit programs, such as tours and alumni trips, are planned in English-speaking regions.
Harry Potter on the Page
& on the Screen
You've read the books and seen the movies. Now explore the process of turning novels into films and the place of the Harry Potter phenomenon in contemporary British culture. In our course, we will discuss the film adaptations of Harry Potter while experiencing the places that inspired the books and provided unforgettable locations for the movies.
We will visit Harry Potter sites in London and Oxford, visit the London Film Museum and tour the Harry Potter exhibit at Warner Brothers London Studios. Muggles and wizards welcome!

Beheadings, Barristers & Bobbies: Understanding the British Legal System
Explore the roots of our American legal system in London and impress your friends with your knowledge of jurisprudence during those “Law and Order” marathons. You will discover firsthand how the legal system works in Great Britain by visiting sites such as the Old Bailey, Scotland Yard and the Inns of Court. But beware—murder and mayhem will also be discussed as we walk the very cobblestones where Jack the Ripper stalked his victims—but do not let that scare you away!
All undergraduate and graduate students in good standing are eligible to participate for academic credit in any CCSA program. Regular or part-time students at CCSA member institutions must register for courses through their home institutions. Students from institutions outside the consortium register as visiting students at Western Kentucky University. CCSA program courses are part of the regular course offerings of member universities; therefore, students may apply for any student loans or grants for which they would normally have eligibility.
