Academics at Harlaxton
Emphasis is placed on British Studies; six out of the twelve course hours are British Studies courses. These six hours count as Honors course credits, toward the fifteen credits needed for honors graduate certification. British Studies offers an interdisciplinary survey of British history and culture from earliest times to the present day. The course consists of twenty-eight twice weekly lectures and seminars, and three field trips—one in each section of the course. It explains the political development of the various nations that make up the British Isles, and the changing nature of the often fractious relationship between those countries (England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.) Its central theme is national identity—it is concerned with and seeks to explain the nature of Britain historically, politically, culturally, and intellectually. By understanding the protracted and difficult process by which the United Kingdom became unified, the course helps students appreciate the nation in which they are living, and understand current debates about devolution and the future of that nation. The remaining six hours of the Harlaxton program consists of core classes or classes that are specific to a student’s major.
