Time in the USA and Canada
We are delighted to be able to offer American Studies students at Canterbury Christ Church a number of options for spending time in the USA or Canada.
Annual field trip
Each year, normally in or around the Easter vacation, there is a field trip to the USA which is open to any student in American Studies. Recent destinations- which last about a week - New York, Chicago, Washington DC, and San Francisco. The American Studies staff organise events, visits and tours during the week, but students are free to organise their own activities in addition to or instead of some of the scheduled itinerary.

Summer school in the USA
American Studies students can also undertake a summer school (July/August) at selected universities in North America.
A semester in the USA or Canada in Year 3
There is also room in the American Studies programme for single honours students to spend an entire semester studying at an American or Canadian university in Year Three, in practice the period from September to December or from January to May.
A full year in the USA or Canada
American Studies (including joint/combined students) can also spend a full academic year in the USA or Canada, normally Year 3 of their Christ Church experience, as part of an overall four year degree.
A number of American Studies students also spend one or more summers in the USA involved in Camp America or a similar scheme. American Studies staff are happy to provide references etc for students wishing to do this.
