Liverpool Study Abroad Program

life on campus

Explore the modern city of Liverpool and the coastal beauty of Northern Wales!  Students will receive credit for two courses for a total of six credit hours.   Students enroll in two courses, one in Sociology and the other in Political Science. In these courses, students learn about the U.K. criminal justice system and explore variation in crime around the globe.
Visits to the Liverpool courts, Merseyside Police Department, International Slavery Museum, and the historic city of Chester complement in-class learning and allow students an opportunity to explore Northern U.K.  A weekend trip to North Wales includes visits to medieval castles, Snowdonia, and the seaside town of Llandudno.  And, of course, no trip to Liverpool would be complete without a tour of the famous Anfield football stadium.

Students are housed on the campus of the University of Liverpool, which is centrally located in easy walking distance to the city center, restaurants, museums, and theatres.
