Summer program : Southern Miss British Studies Program

In summer 2012, the Southern Miss British Studies Program, one of the oldest and largest study-abroad programs in the U.S., will offer a course in Library & Information Science.  Spend a month with us in the United Kingdom, June 28 – July 29, 2012, earning 6 hours of credit while learning about interesting, historic libraries, archives and special collections. Distinguished British librarians, archivists, and information specialists will provide lectures and behind-the-scenes tours in a variety of British libraries, museums, and archives.

Students will have the opportunity to accompany faculty to sites around London and Edinburgh as well as day trips to Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford.  Students will have time to explore sites of interest on their own or to see a play at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the National Theatre or the Old Vic Theatre, all within walking distance on the South Bank of the Thames.  King’s College Dorm on Stamford Street is a short distance from Waterloo Station, where you may catch the tube to Leicester Square theatre district, Paddington Station, or King’s Cross Station, site of Harry Potter’s “Platform 9¾.”

The Southern Miss School of Library and Information Science is accredited by the American Library Association and students from other ALA-accredited programs from across North America as well as Hawaii have participated.  Information about course requirements is available online at:
