Study Abroad Opportunity for Communication & Culture Majors/Minors in Canterbury, England

From Jessica Manthie, an advisor in the Office of Overseas Study:

I am writing to tell you about a great study abroad opportunity available to students in the Communication & Culture department. IU administers an academic year program at the University of Kent in Canterbury, England where students are directly enrolled at a British university and take classes with British students. The University of Kent is situated about one hour southeast of London in the midst of a famous cathedral city and picturesque villages. The academic year program in Kent is designed for students to pursue their major or minor area(s) of study.

For instance, some courses (called modules at Kent) that students in your department have recently completed and received credit for on the Canterbury program are listed below. You can also consult Kent’s catalogues of modules at for more specific information on classes offered such as their descriptions, length, etc.

Popular Culture, Media & Society
European Cinema
The Silent Cinema
Special & Digital Effects
Avant-Garde & Experimental Cinema
British Cinema since 1950's
Storytelling & the Cinema
Film & Television Adaptation

For general information about the program, eligibility requirements and application procedures, students can view our web flyer at The deadline for applications is January 15, 2008.
