Since 1986, more than 200 students from MSU and 20 other universities have completed the "Forensic Anthropology and Human Identification" study abroad program. The first two and the last two weeks of the program take place in London, and the third week is spent in the coastal town of Bournemouth.
In London, classes are held in facilities at Regent’s University. Field trips are scheduled to the Museum of Natural History, the Royal College of Surgeons, the British Museum, the Museum of London and Guy's Hospital. Eminent scientists provide lectures and behind-the-scenes tours at each of these sites. In addition, class lectures include visits by several internationally known scholars.
In Bournemouth, students study human skeletal anatomy at Bournemouth University. This week is designed to expose students to intense study of human osteology.
The student's academic experience will be enhanced by the opportunity to become immersed in a foreign lifestyle. In addition to coursework, group activities include the theatre in London and a banquet in Bournemouth. Students will be encouraged to take advantage of the many excellent cultural opportunities available in both London and Bournemouth. Three-day weekends allow for independent travel.
