UMD Announces 2004-2005 Study in England
Forty-five Students Participating
The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) has announced the participants in the 2004 2005 UMD Study in England Program. Forty-five students are taking part this year.
The Study in England Program is an opportunity for UMD students to enrich their college experience by spending an academic-year abroad. The students spend the year at the University of Birmingham Selly Oak Campus, 110 miles northwest of London, England. The classes, taught by both UMD and British faculty, are scheduled in an intensified 4-day week, leaving long weekends available for field trips and independent traveling. UMD Assistant Professor Anna Marie Roos is this year's program director.
Participants enroll for twelve or more credits (ideally fifteen) each semester. All classes are offered for University of Minnesota credit. Upon successful completion of the Study in England Program, each student will earn a UMD foreign studies minor.
Program participants must be current UMD students or be from other universities who are admissible to UMD. Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.4 with at least 24 credits at the time of application, and stay above that GPA while participating in the program.
