The Liverpool, England Study Abroad program is sponsored by both the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA). For a three-week term, students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture and history of Northwest England. The program is focused on crime and justice. Students live on the campus of the University of Liverpool and will go on excursions to Northern Wales, Chester, Liverpool F.C., Crown Court, and Merseyside police. Students will enroll in two courses, one in Political Science and the other in Sociology. In addition to instruction by UGA faculty, these courses will include guest lectures from resident experts on faculty at the University of Liverpool.

About Liverpool

Liverpool  is a city in North West England and is on the eastern side of the Mersey Estuary. Its growth as a major port was paralleled by the expansion of the city throughout the Industrial Revolution. Liverpool was home to the White Star Line, and was the port of registry of the ocean liner RMS Titanic, the RMS Lusitania, RMS Queen Mary and RMS Olympic. Liverpool is home to The Beatles, which contributes to its status as a tourist destination. The city celebrated its 800th birthday in 2007!
