At Oxford, you have the opportunity to take two or three courses. Because these fulfill course requirements detailed in the SBU catalog, grades will be transferred directly to your St. Bonaventure transcript and degree audit.
While you can take three courses, you might be much better off taking two. Much of the learning while you are at Oxford comes outside the classroom — the experiences of being in the U.K., of formal dinners of elegant food paired with the perfect wine, of traveling to other countries, and of the daily learning that comes from living abroad. You might want to optimize the time you have away from class and the library. That time, too, is invaluable learning time.
Many courses do not have prerequisites. However, if you plan to take an upper-level course offered at Oxford, prior to participating in the summer program you must ensure all course prerequisites have been met or secure permission to participate through the associate director.
When the weather is nice, classes are often held outside in the gardens of Trinity College.
The exact courses that will be offered in 2024 will be determined by student interest early in the spring semester. The following is the list of courses which will be tentatively offered. If you are interested in Oxford, plan your Spring on-campus schedule accordingly.
