In this unique week long class we will explore theatre as it developed and as it exists now in the exciting city of London, England.
The program will be headquartered in London and requires daily field trips to nearby locations in the city. All class gatherings will be on-site, focusing on first-hand experience (as opposed to lecture) and will leave ample time for students to explore London on their own. The course includes attendance at four professional theatre performances in London , as well as backstage tours at the Globe Theatre, the National Theatre and the Royal Theatre Drury Lane.
Students earn 3 credits and can select from one of the following:
THEA 217 Theatre Appreciation (G1)
THEA 317 London Theatre Tour (G1 & P)
THEA 412 Topics in Theatre (Advanced Topics)
This class fulfills the general education perspectives requirement. Students should work with their academic advisors to ensure that these 3 credits are appropriately utilized for the student's major/minor requirements or to fulfill General Education requirements.

Study Abroad requires a student to plan for both academic costs/fees and personal expenses. It is important to keep in mind the cost of living and currency exchange rates compared to costs associated with living in Millersville (for example, living in a large city will be more expensive than living in Millersville, however in other areas of the world, the cost of living may be less.)
Federal/State Financial Aid: If you qualify for federal and/or PA state financial aid, you may apply it to your accredited study abroad program. For aid specific to summer aid: most students are required to be registered for a minimum of 6 credits in order to be eligible for financial aid. Any aid received during the summer will be deducted from the amount of aid available to you for the following academic year. (Summer classes Financial Aid questions)
The Office of Global Education prepares cost worksheets for all of the official MU study abroad programs to submit to the Financial Aid Office. As part of the Pre-Departure Paperwork process, students must indicate on their paperwork whether or not they wish to use summer financial aid. If they choose to use financial aid for this course abroad, the Office of Global Education will submit a cost worksheet to the Financial Aid Office on their behalf. These worksheets take into account all academic costs to study abroad (including additional tuition, living expenses, passport fees, airfare, etc.) and are used to re-evaluate students' financial aid packages. Costs associated with any additional travel outside of what is required by the program will not be included in the financial aid cost worksheet.
Students should contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss their specific financial aid package.
Students will live in a dormitory setting with a single room. Accomodations include:
- a washstand
- a small refrigerator
- shared bathrooms
- bed linens
- a towel
