Washington and Lee is one of thirteen U. S. colleges and universities affiliated with Advanced Studies in England (ASE), an undergraduate humanities program based in the city of Bath which offers qualified students a one- or two-semester experience (summer school also available). Students live in Georgian townhouses near the city center. The seminar-sized classes taught by British faculty often include study trips designed to deepen the students' understanding of the particular curricular subjects and English culture. ASE is formally associated with University College, Oxford University where students study for a 9-day residency each semester. Dr. Christopher Pelling, Regius Professor of Greek at Oxford University, appoints the Oxford faculty and oversees the time in Oxford. Students also spend a week each semester in Stratford-upon-Avon while attending the Royal Shakespeare Company productions. Applicants to ASE should have a 3.000 cumulative grade-point average. Interested students should see Professor Suzanne Keen, Washington and Lee's representative on the ASE Advisory Board for further information, catalogs, and application forms.
