Study Abroad: Advanced Studies in English

Attention, Hampton University Students!

Since 1990, Advanced Studies in England and University College, Oxford have offered a high quality liberal arts study abroad program in Bath, a famous 18th c. resort city with Roman roots, located two hours west of London near Bristol and the gateway to Wales. To date, over a dozen Hampton students have participated in ASE summer or semester study programs while earning credit toward their Hampton University degrees.
