Sponsored by the Medieval Studies Program

 How great would it be to study the Middle Ages (literature, history, culture) in a revered and ancient medieval institution? How great would it be to research environmental issues (policy, history, politics) from the vantage point of Oxford University? You may have the opportunity to do one of these! Come hear about the Medieval/Evironmental Studies Summer Program at St. Peter’s College, Oxford.  Talk with Drs. Gale Sigal or Gillian Overing to see whether you’d like to have an Oxford educational experience for a summer! The courses take place at the distinguished Magdalene College, Oxford and are taught by Oxford dons.
