cj_pic4 FULL

One of the most popular programs offered by the School of Criminal Justice, Political Science, & International Studies is its annual, two-week course of study that focuses on a variety of specialized topics at its Wroxton campus in Oxfordshire, England.  Each course provides students a unique academic, social, and cultural experience studying under prominent British leaders within academia, government, media, criminal justice, and private sector professionals.

Characterized as one of England’s “most beautiful dwellings” by Britain’s Country Life (2002), studying at Wroxton Abbey has been described as stepping back into time.  A 12th Century estate, Wroxton Abbey is surrounded by quintessential thatched roof cottages adorned with the colorful English gardens.

Students have the opportunity of visiting quaint countryside villages, 

bustling metropolitan centers, sample British cuisine, and attend the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.  Trips, via luxury coach buses, take students to the historical sites and cities such as Banbury, Bath, Bourton-on-the-Water, the Old Bailey, Oxford, Parliament, Stonehenge, Stratford-Upon-Avon, and Warwick Castle.

Highlighting the experience is a weekend stay in London where students receive a personalized tour of Parliament, the Old Bailey Criminal Court, and Britain’s Supreme Court.  Typical others sites frequented by students include Buckingham Palace and the changing of the guard, the National Gallery, the British Museum, the Cabinet War Rooms, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar and Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, and Covent Gardens.  Of course, a visit to London wouldn’t complete without retracing the steps of the notorious “Jack-the Ripper” and visiting the Sherlock Holmes Pub and Museum.
