Academics at University of Oxford, St. Anne’s College Partnership
Because of the individualized nature of the tutorial system, colleges at Oxford do not have an online course catalog. However, St. Anne's has a page with a list of possible tutorial subjects. All tutorials are subject to availability of tutors.
Students take one primary (major) and one secondary (minor) tutorial every term. Students are not permitted to receive extra credit by taking two primary tutorials in one term. Butler University will award students 8 U.S. semester credit hours for each primary tutorial and 4 U.S. semester credit hours for each secondary tutorial. No credit will be awarded for additional work undertaken even if the Oxford College approves it.
Butler University will issue 12 U.S. semester credit hours for the Michaelmas (fall) term, 16 U.S. semester credit hours for Early Start fall term, 24 U.S. semester credit hours for the Hilary/Trinity (spring) two-term program and 36 U.S. semester credit hours for the academic year at Oxford.
Science and math students may be required to attend University lectures or to take one or more short tutorials. Regardless of the number of tutorials or lectures required, science students will earn the same number of credits (12 U.S. semester credit hours per term) as other students.
Spring two-term students can apply to study the following subjects: English, History, Classics, Music, Politics, Philosophy and Economics. Economics students should note that their options will be more limited.
Please review all your syllabi and course materials when you are registering for classes (both pre-arrival and on-site). Certain classes may have a one-off lab or field trip fee that is disclosed in the syllabus or first meeting of class. You will be responsible for these fees, whether they are billed and paid by IFSA or billed to you.
The Making and Unmaking of Modern Britain: Britishness and the Construction of National Identity in the Twenty-First Centrury
Arrive early and take an additional 4 credits in the fall term with this special early-start option.
To understand modern Britain, it is vital to know something of how British national identity has been formulated in an historical, political, social, and cultural sense. Is the story of Britain in the twenty-first century one of the making or unmaking of the nation? How have British institutions such as schools, the media, museums, and churches, helped or hindered the formation of a singular national identity? And to what extent have social constructions including class, race, gender, and sexuality, divided or united the British people? Drawing on the disciplines of history, political science, sociology, and art history, amongst others, this paper serves to introduce students to some of the main debates exercising Britons today, and in so doing, highlights the wealth of primary sources available to students for research and evaluation in this field.
St. Anne's College’s offers a special program for pre-Medical students in the fall and academic year. More details are available here.
