J-Term D: Shakespeare and the Theatre
 
  YOUR ASA EXPERIENCE
You will receive individualized support from ASA’s advisors and staff throughout your program application process, while you are abroad, and when you return. You will also receive a detailed pre-departure orientation guide which will help you know what to pack, what to expect when you arrive, and how to stay safe while abroad. 

Once you arrive you will participate in our onsite orientation with the other ASA students in your group. ASA’s site director will introduce you to your host city and culture through orientation and multiple events during the program. Our intentionally small group sizes allow ASA’s students to get to know one another and are an aspect of our programs for which our alumni consistently express their appreciation. You will have opportunities to meet other students and lots of new people through your classes and social events.

ASA programs include excursions, housing, meals, cell phones, academic credits, transcripts, airport pick-up on arrival, medical insurance and more! Contact ASA or your advisor to learn about ASA’s Price Guarantee for all of our programs.
 COURSES
An exciting academic and cultural experience in England that will allow students to explore the cities and streets that Shakespeare himself walked. There is no better place to study Shakespeare than on the banks of the Thames, the alleys of Eastcheap, and amidst the architecture and vistas that he knew. Although Shakespeare’s texts provide us with some of our richest literary experiences, the playwright hardly thought about publication. The theater was a living, money-making scheme, shaped by its location in the slums, by immediate political situations, and by the actors and patrons who entered the gates of the playhouse. This course will teach Shakespeare as one of history’s great artists, whose greatness was forged within the contingencies and pressures of the real world. Fortunately, much of that world is still there to be studied and experienced lovers of literature and theater alike.

Cities/Sites Visited: London, Stratford, Oxford.

Students on J-Term D will take the same interdisciplinary class and may earn 3 credits for one of the following courses, of their choosing

Theatre 385: Shakespeare
Literature 385: Shakespeare
English 385: Shakespeare
