Virginia Program at Oxford Summer School at Oxford University

The Virginia Program at Oxford is a Washington and Lee-sponsored, interdisciplinary summer school program based in St. Anne's College, Oxford University. The six-week program, which is open to students of any major after their first year, examines the history and literature of Renaissance England. Instruction follows the English system of higher education, combining daily lectures by renowned, British scholars with small, weekly tutorials. Students, drawn from a six-school consortium of small Virginia colleges and universities, earn three credits in history and three credits in English. These credits may be used to fulfill Washington and Lee's FDR requirements in literature and humanities and may also be applied toward a major (unlike most summer credits) in English, history, or Medieval and Renaissance studies. Some need-based financial aid is available.
