What is the course?
THDA 531: London Experience – Discovery: 4-credit course satisfying the Discovery Fine and Performing Arts requirement.
Learn about one of the greatest cities in the world during this exciting 10-day trip to London! This Discovery class begins as a two-week, on-line course and then packs in a busy schedule visiting amazing sights and taking in some of the best theatre in the English speaking world! The course offers an insight into the history, politics, society and culture of London through the lens of art, architecture, music and of course, theatre.
THDA 532: The London Experience: 2-credit course
The London Experience program also offers a two-credit version of the class. This course takes part in all the same activities as the four-credit class, but will require approximately half the academic workload.
