The Wroxton Experience

Come Study Abroad in Wroxton, England!

cj_pic7 FULLYour studies at FDU will not be complete without taking a course at Wroxton College, one of Britain’s “most beautiful dwellings” (Britain’s Country Life, 2002). As part of a 3-credit graduate course offered by the School of Psychology, you can study Special Topics In Forensic Psychology (PSY7243) on the Wroxton, England campus! For this course, 10 days will be spent in England, and the remaining classes will be held on FDU’s Metropolitan Campus.1

This course, which runs during Summer Session 1, is required for the MA students of Forensic Psychology. However, others interested in forensic psychology, such as graduate students in the Clinical Psychology and Criminal Justice programs, and students in the Forensic BA/MA accelerated program, are also encouraged to participate in this unique opportunity.

1Students may elect not to travel to England, and will complete the course on the Metropolitan Campus
