Arrive Date: September 25, 2017 End Date: December 3, 2017


While taking two classes taught by LSE faculty, International Relations in Western Europe and Western European Politics, and enjoying guest talks by distinguished speakers and excursions to sites in London (under Political Science 190), in British Political Thought (POL 117) you will trace the modern constitutional state in Britain from the nearly despotic rule of the Tudor monarchs in the 16th C to the current system of limited government, which emerged after centuries of political conflict and civil war.

Texts by Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and David Hume and at least one Shakespeare play students will attend at the famous Globe Theater in London will provide the backdrop for this fascinating historical and political trajectory.
