Program Summary & Location

GroupThis four-week program includes the course HIST 401: Public History in England. This exciting historically focused program will begin in Grantham at Harlaxton College, the British campus of the University of Evansville. Harlaxton is a 100-room Victorian manor house in the English midlands. Located on the edge of Harlaxton village, two miles outside of Grantham, the Manor is set amidst the green pastures and rolling hills typical of the English countryside.  Nottingham, the nearest city, is about 20 miles away. A convenient rail network provides easy access to other parts of Great Britain, making trips all over the country possible. London is about an hour away by train. Part of Harlaxton's unique academic strength is seeing firsthand the places you are studying. Additionally, travel and field trips to museums and historical sites are an integral part of the course.  Students will travel to York, Durham, Liverpool, Birkenhead, and London to explore public history throughout England.
