The Canterbury Program is a cooperative program between Cazenovia College and Canterbury Christ Church University
(CCCU). Students participating in the Canterbury study abroad program will take classes at CCCU. CCCU’s Canterbury campus is the largest of its five campuses and an hour away from London by train. A World Heritage Site and home to England’s oldest cathedral, the city of Canterbury provides an endless source of historical, architectural and cultural inspiration.
This international study experience takes place during the fall semester and is designed primarily for students who are in their junior year, though students who are seniors can also participate. The program is selective and students must complete an application process.
This study abroad course is offered during the fall semester. Those who participate in the Canterbury Program remain registered Cazenovia College students and must enroll in OS-301-01—Overseas Study
The 15 semester hour course load taken by all students who participate in the Canterbury Program includes 4 courses of 3 semester hours each through Canterbury Christ Church University, plus a 3 semester hour class taught by the Cazenovia College study abroad mentor. The courses include:
The courses include:
- Divided by a Common Language (3 credit hours) – a comparative study of contemporary Britain and the USA;
- either From the Britons to the British: A History Survey from 43AD to 1688, or Wayward Wives and Mad Men: A British Literature Survey 1300-1800 (3 credit hours);
- two additional courses selected from the CCCU curriculum that satisfy Cazenovia College degree requirements. Previous choices have included Ethics, World Religions or American Modernism (3 credit hours each), and;
- a course convened by the Cazenovia College faculty member who accompanies the students during their stay in Canterbury (3 credit hours)
