Study Abroad

EXCHANGE WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL ENGLAND

The History Department at the University of Maryland has a student exchange program with the History Department at the University of Liverpool. Liverpool is especially strong in ancient and medieval history, as well as European, British, Latin American, African, Middle Eastern and East Asian history. Liverpool is an interesting city about the size of Baltimore and within easy reach of the beautiful mountains of north Wales and sites of the British industrial revolution in Manchester and Lancashire.

Maryland sends one or two students a year to study at Liverpool. To apply you must be a History major, have at least a 3.0 GPA and be willing to study at Liverpool for a full academic year. Since the British degree is more specialized than ours, this is a wonderful opportunity to study history intensively.

If you are selected for the exchange, you will receive a tuition scholarship. Your expenses for room, board, air fare and miscellaneous expenses will be approximately $9,000-$10,000 per year.

SEMESTER WITH THE MARYLAND STUDY IN LONDON PROGRAM

History majors could also consider a semester in the University of Maryland Study in London program. This program gives you the opportunity to study history and also take liberal arts courses that focus on London and British society. Students select two courses from a broad range of History offerings at the University of North London. The remainder of their program is from courses in Theatre, Art History, Anthropology, Economics and Government that are taught by British faculty hired by the London program. These courses regularly use London to enrich teaching of the course. For example, the Theatre course goes to the theatre weekly and the Art History course is frequently taught in museums and galleries.
