Political Science at the London School of Economics 

London, UK

Arrive Date:  September 25, 2017    End Date:  December 3, 2017

Program Overview

Spend your fall quarter studying Political Science at a Custom Programme at the London School of Economics (LSE), one of the most prestigious institutions in the world and an ideal setting to focus on the politics and international relations of Britain and Western Europe.

Developed specifically for UC Davis students and the Department of Political Science, this custom programme offers you the opportunity to take two classes taught by LSE faculty, International Relations in Western Europe and Western European Politics, and enjoy guest talks by distinguished speakers and excursions to sites in London (under Political Science 190). Concurrently in British Political Thought (POL 117), taught by UC Davis professor John Scott, you will trace the modern constitutional state in Britain from the nearly despotic rule of the Tudor monarchs in the 16th C to the current system of limited government, which emerged after centuries of political conflict and civil war

Texts by Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and David Hume and at least one Shakespeare play students will attend at the famous Globe Theater in London will provide the backdrop for this fascinating historical and political trajectory
