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.
Dance, Sports & Recreation:
British Influence on American Pastimes
Explore the impact of British dance on American folk, square, ballet, modern and theater dances. Compare and contrast British and American children’s games, creative activities and sports. Visit the Royal Ballet School and Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, hike through London’s parks, experience true British culture and creative pastime through theater performances, dance instructions, studios, stadiums, restaurants and nightlife. From tennis, soccer and badminton to contemporary dance, the British style of creative leisure activities has influenced American pastimes.
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.
