The new Honors program builds on Harlaxton College’s highly successful course in British Studies. It takes advantage of Harlaxton’s rich local resources – architectural, archaeological, literary, musical, and historical – to offer a unique and sophisticated program to students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds. The course allows Honors students to direct their studies towards their major, and combines experiential learning with research-led teaching to enhance students’ skills and their appreciation of Britain’s past and present during their time in the U.K.
The Honors class is taught through a series of seminars and ‘Oxbridge-style’ tutorials in addition to and running parallel with the regular six credit ID 282 program, which provides a survey of British history and culture from earliest times to the present day. Honors students will enjoy a further one-hour discussion class each week in addition to various field trips and extra-curricula events including an evening lecture series in which they will have the opportunity to meet and hear visiting academics from throughout the U.K. and Ireland.
Led by members of Harlaxton’s British faculty who have dedicated research and teaching interests in the areas of study detailed below, the Honors classes provide an interdisciplinary approach to studying the United Kingdom. The course uses a range of vibrant case-studies and sources from the Harlaxton region, including Harlaxton Manor itself. British Studies Honors draws on the finest British, Irish, and American pedagogical traditions to provide Harlaxton Honors students with a unique educational experience.
