1) World Affairs, a multi-lecture course with speakers from around the world, which will cover political issues including the Arab Spring, during which I was present in the Middle East.
2) Exploring Britain, a history course that takes us across the country to different sites including London.
3) This is the one I am most excited for, Shakespeare on Stage and Screen. We will be studying 8 plays and seeing them all performed live, including my favorite, the Merchant of Venice, which we will actually see AT THE GLOBE THEATER. I am beyond excited; I cannot allow my thoughts on it too much else I should ne'er sleep again.
I will also have Friday-Sunday free every week to go explore on my own, so I am going to take major advantage of that. There's so much to see and so little time, but I'll be posting my adventures here hopefully weekly, if not in a weekly-recap form upon return.
On my way back across the pond I'll be spending 4 days in Dublin with my mom, and then we'll be traveling over to Northern Ireland for another 5 days to see a friend and explore Belfast! Ghost tours and Game of Thrones filming locations are definitely on the must-see list.
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy following my journey!
