I learned that the world is small, the time is now, and always take pictures. Think about people first and foremost and treasure every minute. Take every opportunity, you only regret what you don't do and always look at everything. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
Past Review The Best!
I gain 21 new friends. I gained a lot of knowledge from the course. I learned to step out of my comfort zone. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
Past Review The Best!
I've learned to become more understanding of other cultures and how to adapt quickly to new customs. It was absolutely worthwhile! - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I learned about another society and experienced how they lived, which I was able to observe over the course of four weeks. This trip was more conducive to this than a week long vacation I took when I was 15. Yes, it was completely worthwhile. I loved ever second of it. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I had a great experience and taking this class in Oxford was much better that it would have been in Geneseo. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
Yes - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I can't wait to go back and see more. I became more aware of the world around me and brought back a great sense of independence. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I learned all the cheesy stuff. Traveling makes you a global citizen. It helps you step outside of yourself. And this program through Geneseo helps you meet people (great people) that you would've probably never met without the program. The places I went were absolutely amazing and great.

I learned a lot about English culture and history and was able to see many historical and cultural sites. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
Strangely I realized, not through homesickness(I did not get home sick) but simply through spending time in other parts of Europe, that I love where I live and the United States more than anywhere else I visited. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
It was so worthwhile and an unparalleled experience. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review

Yes. Just being in Oxford solidified my appreciation for education in itself. It cemented a direction in my life I had been questioning for years. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review

About

HUMN 221, or Western Humanities, fulfills SUNY Geneseo's Humanities core requirement, and satisfies the Western Civilization general education requirement of SUNY. This course (the original 'Humanities Abroad' course) is held at Lincoln College at Oxford University in Oxford, England. (In some summers, Humanities I is offered instead of Humanities II, depending on the instructor's choices.)

Oxford is one of the great centers of learning in Europe. Situated conveniently close to London, it is also on the edge of one of England's most picturesque areas - the Cotswolds. Also within easy travel is Stratford-upon-Avon. The city itself became, briefly, the nation's capital during England's own Civil War. Today, it is a bustling city and center of European heritage.


  • In the 1640s, Charles I headquartered his royal army against the Puritans in the nearby park where many of our students take morning runs and walks.

  • The first public debates over Darwin's Origin of the Species were held two blocks from our campus.

  • Oxford math student Lewis Carroll (ne, Charles Dodgson) made up stories while baby sitting his dean's daughter Alice in the gardens of one of our neighboring colleges; these stories became Alice in Wonderland.

  • In the 20th 

  • The Harry Potter series is permanently connected with Oxford- for instance, the scene in The Goblet of Fire in which Professor Moody points his wand at Malfoy and turns him into a white ferret was filmed right across from the dining hall at New College, giant tree and all (Harry Potter V: The Goblet of Fire - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HobPkv5TELA 

Students in our Western Humanities program live and study at Lincoln College. Founded in 1427, Lincoln is the eighth oldest of Oxford University's 38 colleges, retaining its older buildings, including its medieval dining hall. Lincoln has been the home to John Wesley, founder of Methodism; Dr Seuss, the children's author; and Rachel Maddow, presenter on MSNBC. New College founded by William of Wykenham, Bishop of Winchester, in 1379.
