Oxford Summer Programme
Students can experience the traditional Oxford method of education when they attend the three-week Oxford Summer Programme. Students live at Wycliffe Hall, study "how Christianity influenced the development of Western culture," and participate in field trips.
Students choose one Integrative Seminar:
- Christianity and Science
- Issues in Literature
And one Thematic Seminar:
- Christian Spirituality
- Truth and Fiction, Truth in Fiction: C.S. Lewis' Approach to Literature
- Medieval Literature
- Shakespeare's Spiritual Humanism
- Theology of the Reformers
Goals and Objectives
The Oxford Summer Programme attempts to provide students with a focused study of Christianity and western culture.
The program is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Students are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Students are required to attend all Messiah-run pre-departure orientation sessions the semester before studying abroad as well as half-day reentry retreat upon returning to campus the following semester.
Students who attend the Oxford Summer Programme will earn six credits. Courses may meet some general education or major requirements. Courses taken will appear on Messiah transcripts with letter grades. This does not meet general education cross cultural requirements.
Costs: 2014-2015 – Messiah College is currently reviewing its parameters and pricing structure for study abroad programs. Costs for 2014-2015 will be available in November 2013 and will be posted on this website as soon as they become available.
*Airfare not included.
Deadlines will be posted in November 2013
