British Studies

The Yale-in-London program offers Yale undergraduates the opportunity to take spring or summer courses in London at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. The Paul Mellon Centre has its own library, classroom, and students’ common room. All the seminar-style classes are held Monday through Thursday, generally in the mornings, so students can explore London and surrounding areas in the afternoons and on weekends. Yale-in-London courses carry full academic credit and are taught by Yale faculty based at the Paul Mellon Centre, by professors visiting from Yale, and by leading British academics. Student accommodations are provided at convenient, nearby locations. Field trips to museums and historic houses in London and other English cities are an integral part of the program. Drama courses make full use of London’s theater scene, with visits to everything from top West End plays, to small fringe productions, to talks by playwrights, directors, and actors. All Yale undergraduates are eligible to apply to the program regardless of their declared or intended major.
