Program Overview
Join CCSA in one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan cities on earth, a wonderful background against which to study a wide array of subjects. All roads may lead to Rome, but achievements in almost every field of human endeavor find their point of origin in London, the capital of what was once the largest empire in the world. Four weeks isn’t enough to begin to experience all this city has to offer, but it’s certainly enough to make a start. By making use of university housing and facilities at the Hampstead campus of the University of London’s King’s College, CCSA is able to offer a rich program that combines classroom and course-specific field trip activities, while leaving students free to explore parts of England by rail as well on weekends.
 
Please carefully read the Program Details section for additional information pertinent to all CCSA programs.
 
The London Summer Program includes in its base price one course
worth 3 hours of semester credit. Students may select from any of the
courses listed in the Course Descriptions section. The price of the
program does not include tuition.
 
Students also have the option to take a second 3 credit-hour course
on the London Summer Program for a fee of $500; additional
tuition for the class may also be charged by the student’s home
university. The $500 second course fee becomes non-refundable
following the first payment deadline. Students considering taking the
option to add a second class should bear in mind that doing so will
require them to be in class or mandatory class-related activities all day
Monday through Thursday.

APPAREL & TEXTILE DESIGN/MERCHANDISING
Cross-Cultural Design, Merchandising & Marketing

economic systems as they relate to apparel and other products and
to environments. Activities include visits to landmarks, museums,
manufacturers and various retail venues, guest lectures, and handson

COMMUNICATIONS/MEDIA STUDIES
British Media: It’s Another World
    Full class - no longer accepting applicants
British television has given us a wide variety of programming, from BBC
News to Simon Cowell’s American Idol (Pop Idol in England) and from the
original versions of The Office, Real World and Big Brother to the immensely
popular Downton Abbey with its more classical sensitivities. British
newspapers shout with giant, provocative, attention-grabbing headlines.
British radio has played a vital and continuing role in providing important
information, as well as deep music playlists to its audiences. Add the
powerful influence of British music on pop culture, and it’s clear to see that
media content in England is...well, British! British Media: It’s Another World!
is an unforgettable study abroad experience, during which we explore
important media sites from London to Liverpool, while we give careful
consideration to the ways media in the US and the UK impact us, both as
citizens and consumers.

Mystery, Magic & Mayhem-- From Sherlock Holmes to
Harry Potter
   Full class - no longer accepting applicants

Why are we attracted to mysteries and enamored with detectives like
Sherlock Holmes who solve them? Why do we envy Harry’s magical powers?
What do these figures tell us about our infatuation with the “rational/
irrational,” about power and about the culture from which they come? We
will read the first “detective novel” in English literature, Wilkie Collins’ The
Moonstone, which influenced Charles Dickens’ novels as well as Sir Arthur
Conan Doyle’s creation of Sherlock Holmes. We’ll also study Holmes’ stories,
Stevenson’s Jekyll & Hyde, Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Miss Marple and end
with some of Rowling’s Harry Potter books--with references to Dickens along
the way. We’ll go see where the Harry Potter films were shot (Alnwick Castle
and Oxford) and attend Christie’s Mousetrap, the longest-running play ever in
London to discover sites associated with our reading. We’ll even do our own
scavenger hunt! You could even come with me on the optional weekend trip
to Edinburgh, home to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and J.K. Rowling. Don’t miss
out; as Holmes announces, “the game’s afoot!”

Sherlock Holmes’ London: Mystery & the Metropolis Course Cancelled
Find clues to Sherlock Holmes’ enduring appeal while following his trail
throughout London. Though Holmes is Arthur Conan Doyle’s most intriguing
character, an equally important “character” is London itself, with its
labyrinthine streets and criminal underworld. We’ll read the Sherlock Holmes
stories alongside historical, literary and artistic accounts of Victorian London,
including Jack the Ripper’s East End. We’ll explore Holmes’ mysterious
metropolis with visits to sites important to Conan Doyle, the Holmes stories,
Victorian history and recent Sherlock films and shows. Potential field trips to
sites important to Sherlock and Conan Doyle, including Edinburgh, Scotland;
England’s southern Coast; and Devonshire.

Keep Calm & Carry On: Life in Great Britain during
World War II

It’s been nearly 70 years since World War II ended in Great Britain, but that
period of history remains shrouded in myth and legend. Come explore
London, Coventry, Dover and other towns re-shaped by war, and see how
civilians lived under the threat of bombs and possible invasion. We’ll study
the evacuation of nearly 2 million children from London to the countryside
and follow the path of city girls who formed a land army to keep farms
running. And, of course, we’ll explore how the British “keep calm” spirit
helped to shape modern Britain and its people.

Child pub, the colleges and the Inklings’ homes. From the pens of Lewis

Christianity, but also some of the 20th Century’s most enduring scholarship,

HISTORY
Bodies & Knowledge: Making Medicine Modern in Victorian
Britain & Beyond
     Course Cancelled

In this course we will examine the transformation of medicine that took
place in Great Britain from roughly 1832 to 1920. At the heart of our course
is a question: What role did British imperialism play in the development of
nineteenth and early twentieth century medicine in London? To answer this
question, students will engage in an investigative endeavor involving the
physical and cultural landscape of London, as well as independent research
developed out of course readings. Students will have an opportunity to
learn about the development of several different medical fields, including
pharmaceuticals, surgery, dentistry, nursing and epidemiology. We will
utilize London’s architectural and cultural resources, particularly museums, as
well as sources from the time period, including letters, pamphlets, cartoons
and newspaper articles to examine the professionalization of medicine in
nineteenth and early twentieth century Britain. At the end of the course,
students will develop a deeper understanding of the relationship between
Britain and its empire and how this relationship enabled the development of
modern Western medicine.

From accounting and art to theology and zoology, students of any major will
gain a broad perspective on biomedical and research ethics in this course.

PSYCHOLOGY/SOCIOLOGY
Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll: Music & Drug Subcultures in the US
& the UK

The “Mods” used amphetamines to stay up all weekend listening to music.
In swinging London and 60’s San Francisco, hippies glorified psychedelic
music, psychedelic drugs and free love. Raves ran on ecstasy, the “love drug.”
Why are many subcultures defined by their music and drugs of choice?
Are they trying to establish identity, seek spiritual awakening, respond to
oppression or just have fun? Using historical and contemporary subcultures
as examples, we will explore biological, psychological and sociological
factors that may explain how music, sexuality and drugs help define identity
for groups that are (willingly or unwillingly) separate from majority culture.

All the World’s a Stage
     Course Cancelled
This summer, London is your muse and your stage. We’ll immerse ourselves
in this theatre wonderland, experiencing the raw emotion and magic of live
shows and analyzing the literary genius of classic writers like Shakespeare
and modern artists like Jez Butterworth. Armed with a new understanding of
the basic elements of playwriting and surrounded by inspiration, you’ll take
up the bardic tradition and write your own short play.

Hampstead Theatre and at The West End. Visits and tours to Stratford-upon-
Avon, Cambridge, Oxford, The Theatre Museum, Shakespeare’s Globe, The
