UMD Programs in England
UMD offers students the ability to participate in a year-long program in Birmingham, England or a spring semester at Loughborough University, or a short-term program in Birmingham. England has a vibrant and rich history, ranking it among the most influential and far-reaching centers of cultural development in world history. Among the influences that came from the region are the origins of the English language, English law and the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. It is also historically the center of the British Empire. In the midst of this country of over 50 million is its capital city London, the largest in England as well as in the European Union with up to 14 million people living in the metro area.
The Study in England Programme, UMD's oldest sponsored study abroad program, offers students a wonderful opportunity to enrich their college experience by spending an academic-year abroad. Students will spend the academic year at the University of Birmingham, 110 miles northwest of London. The college facilities - library, computer labs, recreational and social areas - are available to program participants.
Students have many course options. Each term a minimum of five courses are offered by UMD faculty members who participate in the program with the students. Additionally, UMD hires several British faculty to offer additional courses in their specialty areas. Finally, UMD students can directly enroll in courses which span many disciplines offered by the University of Birmingham-Selly Oak Campus. These options allow students to complete UMD liberal education requirements as well as to fulfill major/minor requirements.
Departure is in early September with a return in May.
Take the first step toward a life-changing experience by applying for the exchange between UMD's Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Loughborough University (LU).
This course covers the techniques of historical methodology and source analysis, and the general narrative of the Industrial Revolution and British Empire (including colonial perspectives), as well as the internal history of the game of soccer itself.
