Summer Liberal Arts
At the heart of Fordham's study abroad programs is the idea of the world as the classroom. Small and informal class settings let students explore subjects from a new perspective and in a unique setting. Students engage with the city of London inside and outside of the classroom. Situated in the vibrant Clerkenwell district in the Borough of Camden, Fordham London will serve as your home-base while studying abroad in London.
Application deadline: February 15
Fordham London is located in the Borough of Camden in Central London, in a neighborhood called Clerkenwell.
The United Kingdom—England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland—is a diverse place full of contrasts, featuring a wide range of landscapes and cultures. London, the largest city in Europe, is a bustling cosmopolitan center of astonishing variety and interest that a visitor could explore for months without turning over every stone. The other regions of the U.K. are fascinating for their own reasons, each with a unique personality and history.
Fordham College students may enroll in a total of 8 credits and Gabelli students may enroll in a total of 12 credits during the summer. Students will select courses from the following list:
