Academics & Program

Foundation for International Education in London

In addition to taking an FIE key course and two to three elective courses, students choose one of the following pathways:

Study Pathway: You will take 4 to 5 classes including one of FIE's Key Courses and electives selected from over 40 courses in Arts, Literature, and Theatre; Contemporary Britain; Global Business; Global Studies; History and Politics; Humanities and Social Sciences; Media and Communications; Peace, Conflict, and Social Justice.

Internship Pathway: Your studies are paired with an FIE internship placement at a small-to-medium sized London company. Classes include your International Internship Course (IIC), which integrates your internship with classroom seminars - the perfect setting for reflecting and analyzing your work experience. You will also take an FIE Key Course and 2 to 3 elective courses.

Service Internship Pathway: There's so much more to an international service internship than a bullet point on your resume for doing service work overseas. Classes include your International Service Internship Course (IIC), an FIE Key Course, and 2 to 3 elective courses.


 Course Offerings

To help contextualize the London experience, students enroll in a Key Course, which serves as an anchor for FIE study abroad in London. Students choose from one of the four Key Course options: British Life and Cultures, British Life and Europe, British Life and Visual Media, or British Life and Business.

Students also take two to three elective courses in the following subject areas: Arts, Literature and Theater, Contemporary Britain, Global Business, Global Studies, History and Politics, Humanities and Social Sciences, Media and Communications, Peace, and Conflict and Social Justice.

For specific course offerings, please see the FIE website.
