London Theatre Study Abroad
Niagara University theatre studies students may choose to spend two summer months studying theatre in London, England, and earn 12 academic credits toward their degree in the process. Courses in current British Theatre, Elizabethan/Jacobean Drama, Acting and Performance are offered through a prominent London-based university.
Outside the classroom, students visit historical sites, including the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Cathedral, Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace and complete a directed research project based on their experiences.
Attending professional theatre is a significant part of the program and students see over a dozen productions in London’s West End, Shakespeare’s New Globe Theatre, Olivier’s National Theatre and Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Any student interested in the London Theatre Study Abroad Program should contact Dr. Sharon Watkinson early in their academic career to plan for this unique opportunity.
