Explore British identity through two exciting courses at FIE, designed to use London as a classroom!  Spend your summer in London, the financial, cultural, and historical capital of Britain. You'll live and study in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, one of the cities most charming boroughs. Travel on the Tube, visit Kensington Palace during your break between classes, and see Big Ben for yourself during this 5 week program from June - July. 

The Shakespeare and Elizabethan Literature course is meant to introduce students to the fascinating social and historical background to some of the most famous, most compelling poetry and drama ever written. Students will read and watch performances of two of Shakespeareís plays and visit places associated with Shakespeare in London, such as the Globe Theatre.

British Life and Visual Media flashes forward a few centuries to examine issues of cultural identity as reflected by British film, television, photography, and the visual arts. Students will gain an understanding of British culture and society by examining the history of its major social and political institutions, the cultural values of its peoples and significant contemporary socio-political issues and debates emphasizing the impact the development Visual Media has had on British life.
