The Honors College now offers many different opportunities for students who want
to study, intern, travel, or do research
Our newest offering is a London internship
program led by history professor Stephanie Barczewski. This Honors-only program
features a 15 hours/week internship in
London custom-designed to fit each student's interests; six hours of coursework
at Birkbeck College, University of London;
and a three-hour course (taught by Dr.
Barczewski) focusing on how Britain's experiences during the two World Wars
helped shape the nation's history in the
postwar era and even today. In connection
with her course, Dr. Barczewski will make
two trips to the continent, one to France
and one to Germany.
Using Honors College subsidies and following Clemson's study abroad rules, we've
been able to make this program quite affordable. In-state students will find the
program costs just a bit more than staying
home; most out-of-state students will actually save money. And for the most part
you can use your Clemson and other
scholarships toward the cost of this program (for confirmation please check with
the Financial Aid Office, since every case
is different).
The deadline for Spring 2017 is October
15, which is fast approaching. If you're
interested in applying for the London Internship program, please contact Dr.
Barzewski ( as soon
as possible!
