British Studies H382 Honors

The Honors section adds a further element to the H282 program. It offers a unique and sophisticated course 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 UK.

The honors class is taught through a series of seminars and tutorials in addition to and running parallel with the six credit H282 program which provides a survey of British history and culture from earliest times to the present day. Honors students will enjoy further small-group seminars and individual tutorials, various field trips, and extra-curricular events.

Led by members of Harlaxton’s British faculty, the honors classes provide an interdisciplinary approach to studying the United Kingdom.
