This spring from March 12, 2020, to May 15, 2020, ask yourself, “what will I be doing?”
If your answer is going to class at the oldest university in the English-speaking world, um, you might sound more interesting than The Most Interesting Man in the World. Do they even sell Dos Equis at The Bear?

The dream of studying Shakespeare’s Tragedies as you explore The Globe Theater in London while watching one of Shakespeare’s plays on the soil of creation. Walking the same one-way cobblestone streets as famous denizen writers like Oscar Wilde and Thomas Hardy. This is reality; this is class, this is Saddleback College credit and honestly… this is amazing!
It’s one thing to read it, and it’s another thing to feel it. That’s the glory of the Oxford Study Abroad program.

Professor Suki Fisher, English Department Co-Chair at Saddleback College, will be leading her eighth voyage across the pond.
“I value the program, and I value what it does for students,” said Fisher. “I’m a writer, and when I first went over to Oxford, what was really impressing me was how much the authors were inspired by the environment in which they lived.”
Professor Fisher is no stranger to the arts, earning both a Bachelor of Arts from the University of San Diego and a Master of Arts from Chapman University in English literature. And for you writers, Professor Fisher also has a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from Chapman University as well.
“We will be going to Stratford upon Avon, which if you are familiar with Shakespeare, it would be where he was born,” said Fisher.
It’s safe to say students will be exploring the cultural landscape of the United Kingdom with a true champion of English.
