Summer in London tempts USM students

The British Studies program at Southern Miss is celebrating 30 years. At an event Thursday professors were encouraging students to take part in summer study abroad.

For about four weeks 150 to 200 students study in London and can choose from a variety of subjects to learn more about. Students also travel throughout the United Kingdom and can visit other countries.

During a question-and-answer session at Southern Miss, prospective British Studies students were able to ask questions and hear about the benefits of studying abroad from program veterans.

"You talk to these students before they go and many of them are reticent to get up and speak in public," says British studies director Doug Mackaman, "and they come back as ambassadors of the program."

The summer 2007 program will take place between July 6 and August 5.
