Unlike St. Lawrence's programs in Austria, Spain, France and
Kenya, all focused on a nation, this program puts the city of London at the
heart of student learning. Arguably, London is the world's most
"globalized" city, with a third of its residents born outside the UK,
a city in which over 260 languages are spoken, a post-colonial city shaped by
the history of the British empire, and also a city whose multicultural origins
begin with, perhaps even antedate, the arrival of the Romans in 55 B.C.
Students study the phenomena of a global city through a number of different
lenses. The London program offers electives in 7 departments; each course uses
the city as a classroom: Theater in London, Art and Architecture, British
Government, Britain in the 20th Century, Economic Integration of the European
Union, Writing in London, and London's Urban Geogrophies.
