#My100Days: To Asia and Back

Graham Rodes (CGS’20) took the gap semester to work, focus on building a skill, travel, and get out of his comfort zone. He says, “It was for me the first time I could step back from my personal bubble and view how I interact with other cultures, which was an amazing learning experience.”

Courses and Assignments in London

During the semester in London, students in the Boston-London program take in a broad view of literature, history, and rhetoric–from the industrial revolution right up through the digital revolution. Classes explore art and literature, politics, economies, social change, and rhetorical practice.

Advising in the Boston-London Program

Academic advisors partner with College of General Studies students throughout their four years. That doesn’t end when first-year students go to London for their summer semester! CGS academic advisors are in London for part of each summer session so students have them as a resource.

Exploring the Culture, Landmarks and Sights of London

The London semester is packed with assignments and classes, but there’s still time for the activities that make study abroad so enriching– exploring the culture and customs of another country. Some of the London semester excursions are required and built right into the curriculum but students also have a packed calendar of social programming to choose from.
