About the Program

Program Description

Live and learn—and take courses in Liberal Arts and Social Sciences—in one of the world’s great cultural capitals! Home to a diverse range of peoples and cultures, London is an ideal city in which to internationalize your education. At the CEA London Center, you'll choose courses in subjects like literature, theatre studies, art history, political science, history, and sociology, many of which are taught through a “London lens”. It's a great way to meet your major and general education requirements! You may also choose to take one or two courses at our partner, London South Bank University (LSBU), where you'll attend class alongside local and other international students and choose from a wide course list that complements and broadens the curriculum available to London students.

Program Structure

Choose to take courses at both the CEA London Center and LSBU, or take all of your courses at the CEA London Center. By selecting our CEA & LSBU hybrid program, you choose to take courses at both institutions. You’ll enroll in 2-4 CEA elective courses and 1-2 LSBU elective courses. By selecting our CEA London Center-only program you choose to take courses exclusively at the CEA London Center. You’ll enroll in 4-5 CEA elective courses.

CEA courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits; LSBU courses are worth 4 credits. You may earn up to 16 credits (up to 240 contact hours).

CEA courses may meet 1-2 times per week. LSBU courses typically meet once a week. Classes at both locations are typically held Monday - Friday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled outside of your normal class time throughout the week.

Prior to departure you will select your preferred courses. You will be enrolled in courses based on their availability. Partner institution (LSBU) course lists and schedules are not finalized until you’re in London. As such, final course registration takes place on-site. It is critical to understand course availability is subject to change and courses are not guaranteed.  It is in your best interest to get several course alternates approved by your home university prior to your departure date. This will give you flexibility during registration. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Where You'll Study

London South Bank University features seven schools in a flexible, dynamic learning environment that supports students, develops academic programming, and engages with professional industries. Home to a diverse student body from more than 130 nations, LSBU’s centrally located campus offers a familiar on-campus experience for American students, all within an urban setting.
Courses at the CEA London Center use the city as a classroom, incorporating academics with thoughtful site visits and field trips that take full advantage of this vibrant, diverse urban setting. The CEA London Center’s intentional course list offers a focus on business and communication — ideal for complementing internship placements — as well as London-themed courses in areas such as history, literature, theatre studies, art history, and more.

Where You'll Stay

When you study abroad in London, you can choose CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.

I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about not only France, but who I am and what I am capable of. Everybody should have the chance to study abroad because there are so many benefits.
