Baylor in London/Communication Studies is a twenty-nine day study abroad program (July 10-August 8, 2014) based in London. It allows undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work closely with Professors from the Department of Communication Studies to develop their understandings of the communication process in an international environment. Students can earn up to six hours of 4000-level or 5000-level credit through the completion of the program.
Students will be able to enroll in CSS (4304) Advanced Small Group Theory & Practice, CSS (4312) Systemic Inquiry, CSS (4V85) Special Problems in Communication, and CSS (5V35) Special Problems in Communication. CSS (4304) and CSS (4312) will be the primary courses that will be taught in London. These courses will focus on leadership, culture, power, conflict, and gender. CSS (4V85) will be a readings course and will focus on mediation, conflict, dialogue, and questioning skills. CSS (5V35) will also be readings courses and will allow graduate students the opportunity to customize their experience by focusing on issues of their own choosing in consultation with the professors leading the summer program.
Professors David Schlueter and Mark T. Morman from the Department of Communication are the Baylor faculty sponsors and classroom teachers. Both Drs. Morman and Schlueter are established scholars in their fields, have research articles in print, and are experienced and enthusiastic teachers.
London is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Students will have extensive opportunities to experience it along with other parts of the UK. Classes are scheduled allowing students to take full advantage of professor-led excursions or personal adventures you plan and experience on your own. In London, you can visit Kensington Palace, Westminster Abbey, the home of Sigmund Freud, see the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London, argue at Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park, shop at Harrod’s, tour Wimbledon, or visit Churchill’s War Room. You may take day trips to Bath, Oxford, Cambridge, Canterbury, Dover, Stonehenge/Salisbury, Hampton Court, and Stratford Upon Avon. And the list goes on and on. Weekend trips to cities in Europe like Paris or Amsterdam are also easy to plan and experience.
