This program is closed.

Program Overview

Study historical and contemporary crime, law, and justice in London, a city with rich traditions and fabulous cultural resources. Students will take two courses: CRJU/HIST 312 (History of Crime and Criminal Justice) and CRJU 351 (Comparative Criminal Justice Systems). Through visits to historic sites (such as the Tower of London) and contemporary settings (such as London's East End), we’ll trace the social history and legal culture of one of the world’s great cities. We will also take advantage of the opportunities London offers to attend plays and visit museums and cultural sites, and we will hear from scholars, professionals, and activists concerned with the British justice system. Students will reside in double rooms in a hotel. If you’re interested in following Jack the Ripper’s footsteps, seeing what’s left of Jeremy Bentham, or simply learning to mind the gap, this program is for you.

The Program Fee includes accommodations, a tube pass valid for zones 1-2, excursions, medical insurance and a farewell meal. Students will stay in double rooms in a hotel, with breakfast provided.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Europe, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in London. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare.

ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
