Odyssey to Oxford

Experience the World-Famous University of Oxford

Radcliffe Camera, Oxford, England

August 18 - August 31, 2019

Quench your thirst for knowledge by studying at one of the world’s most famous universities while you experience Oxford as a student. Celebrating its 36th anniversary in 2019, this two-week lifelong education program takes you on a rare adventure to Oxford, England, “City of Dreaming Spires”, and to the University of Oxford, famous as a great center of learning since the 12th century.

The 4 draft courses of study for 2019 are:

  1. Their Finest Hour: The BBC at War, 1939 – 1945
  2. Family, Sex and Marriage in Early Modern/Tudor and Stuart England (and America)
  3. The Delights of Fear: The Victorian Ghost Story
  4. The Crusades, East and West, 1095-1250

The 2019 program brochure is expected to be mailed in early January 2019 and it will also be posted here at that time.

Registration will open at 10:00am eastern time on Tuesday, January 29, 2019. Registration will be conducted both online or by mail, although online registration is strongly preferred.

Please note that the MSU Alumni Association cannot "reserve" or "hold" a spot in a course of study in advance of the January 29 registration opening.

This is an extremely popular program that frequently sells out. Space is limited to 47 people and courses of study are limited to 10-14 participants each and fill quickly.
