Check out updates on the KWC blog from the 2012 class describing their adventures in England!
Now is your chance to follow their footsteps. You'll live amongst the Tudors and stay within the grounds of Hampton Court Palace to join Henry VIII. Then you'll follow Elizabeth I to London with the Globe Theatre, Tower of London, and a day trip to Windsor Castle.
Come join us for a Winter Term 2012 journey and course with the Tudors! "The Tudors" is a 3000 level interdisciplinary (IDS) course which will earn three credits and fulfill a Humanities Gen. Ed. requirement.
The class will be taught by Tamara Coy, visiting assistant professor of English. She's the perfect instructor -- she lived in England for twenty years!
Limited places are on a first-come, first-served basis.
