Oxford Seminar

The seminar, usually revolving around a theme in religion and politics, takes place over ten days at Oxford University in England, at the end of June and early July while Oxford undergraduates are still in session.

The program includes the opportunity to be taught by and work one-on-one with Oxford faculty. Students have obtained ample funding from a variety of sources, ask the program director, , for details, applications are taken in the fall term (Aug-Nov) of each year. 

As of Summer 2013 30% of philosophy majors have participated in Oxford over a 2-3 year period. Several accomplished philosophy students from that seminar have gone on to be accepted to graduate programs at Oxford and other top-tier British universities.
