About the Program
Join us for the University of New Hampshire’s Summer Program in Cambridge, England, for this, our thirty-fifth year. Become one of the undergraduate and graduate students who will:
- Take two of the courses offered in English literature, writing, and history. All courses are taught by Cambridge University or University of New Hampshire professors.
- UNH students: fulfill up to three UNH discovery requirements. Studying abroad satisfies the World Cultures Discovery requirement. ENGL 511 fulfills the Humanities and Writing Intensive Discovery requirements. HIST 498 fulfills the Historical Perspectives Discovery requirement.
- Live in a private room at Gonville & Caius (pronounced keys) College on Trinity Street, in the heart of downtown Cambridge. Established in 1348, Caius, as it is commonly known, is the fourth-oldest of Cambridge University’s thirty-one colleges.
- Take your morning and evening meals in a magnificent, medieval-style dining hall. On occasion, join the faculty for dinner at High Table.
- Travel to London, Stratford-on-Avon, and other destinations in the U.K. on our program excursions.
- Explore Cambridge, a magnificent historical city filled with stunning architecture, art, music, theatre, gardens, greens, pubs, punts, monuments and more.
- Have tea at The Orchard in nearby Grantchester, the lovely village where, 100 years ago, Virginia Woolf, Rupert Brooke, Bertrand Russell, John Maynard Keynes, Augustus Johns and others associated with the Bloomsbury Group spent their summers studying and debating art, literature, economics, politics, and cultural norms.
- Engage in just such conversations with students from the U.S. and, perhaps, elsewhere, who will be your classmates at Caius this summer.
For thirty-four years the UNH Summer Program in Cambridge has provided more than 1,500 students with the opportunity to learn first-hand the truth of E.M. Forster’s observation. Cambridge is, indeed, a magical place. We invite you to discover it for yourself.
