Scenes from Edinburgh

As part of your British Studies course, we will be spending several days in Edinburgh. It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Simply breath-taking!

Welcome to the British Studies Program!

Welcome to the 2007 British Studies Program! Dr. Welsh and I are very excited to be able to offer this course. We have some wonderful activities and classes planned for you. We hope that this will be a wonderful experience for all of us. As part of the course this summer, we will be spending several days in Edinburgh. Dr. Welsh and I spent sixteen days in England and Scotland last summer preparing for the course and we have some great activities and visits planned.

We are going to use this blog as part of the course this summer, but we thought we would use it beforehand as a getting-to-know-you tool before we leave. Please feel free to post any questions or comments you may have, in addition to an brief biography about yourself.

We look forward to meeting all of you.
