An on-site study tour in London and Stratford-upon-Avon of contemporary British theater, including tours of museums, theaters, and historical sites whose relevance to British culture and arts will help broaden students’ understanding and appreciation of theater practice. Coursework includes four pre-departure seminars, attendance while in London of five theater performances, and completion of a journal. Additionally, students enrolled in the course will be required to submit one pre-departure essay as well as their choice from the following while abroad: 1) response papers on four of the five theater productions in London; or, 2) response papers on three of the London productions plus one independently viewed theater piece, one historic site, or one museum attended. One of the response papers will consist of a mini-research project. This course satisfies the Core Curriculum requirement of Experiencing the Liberal Arts in the World (ELAW) provided that the student enrolls concurrently in both the study tour (TFMS 281) for four credit hours and in CORE 350 for zero credit hours. Prerequisite for ELAW: GPA of 2.5 or higher. Please note: This course may be used to satisfy the Core Curriculum requirement in Arts if not being taken to satisfy ELAW.
