Oxford, England Summer Studies 2010

Seminars on lyric poetry and lectures on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, 
English history and architecture

Each year the College of St. Thomas More in Fort Worth, Texas invites students, associates, friends of the College, and entering freshman to travel to England to participate in seminars, lectures, and tours given by Tutors of the College in the unique environment of the university city of Oxford. The program gives participants an opportunity to immerse themselves in this historic place and introduces them to the enduring tradition of English-speaking arts and letters begun in Oxford in the twelfth century.

The group will stay at St. Benet’s Hall, a Permanent Private Hall of the University of Oxford located in the center of Oxford on the beautiful, tree-lined street of St. Giles.

Participants take an intensive three-credit course in Lyric Poetry, meeting in the mornings, and attend occasional lectures on important places, dates, and people from English history. Some afternoons are reserved for tours and excursions, with day-trips to London and Canterbury. The cost of the program for students and prospective students is $1350, for non-students, $2350, and includes course tuition, room accommodations, and daily breakfast. Participants are responsible for airfare, bus and train fares, lunch and dinner, and museum fees.

The deadline for registration is June 1. Space is limited. Register now.

For more information or to register for the program, please call Stephen Shivone in the College office at 817-923-8459 or write to him at
