The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) has announced the participants in the 2008-2009 UMD Study in England Program.
The Director of this year's Study in England Program is Greg Fox, UMD Vice Chancellor for Finance and Operations. Joining Director Fox as program instructors are four UMD Faculty members; Brenda Butterfield (Department of Psychology), Bilin Tsai (Department of Chemistry/Biochemistry), Pat Borchert (Department of Management Studies) and Tim Larson (Department of Writing Studies).
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. Participants enroll for twelve or more credits each semester.
Program participants should be current UMD students or students from other universities who are admissible to UMD. All students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.4 with at least 24 credits by the end of spring semester 2008, and stay above that GPA while participating in the program.
