Oxford Studies Program

Offered by arrangement with Crandall University, the Oxford Studies Program provides to qualified Tyndale students the historical, cultural and educational riches of a semester’s study in England with academic credit toward a Tyndale BA. As a participant in the program, you will live with an English family in the charming Cotswold town of Charlbury, just twenty minutes from Oxford by British Rail. You will attend lectures and seminars in Charlbury and Oxford, taught by current or retired Oxford professors, doctoral students and other experts in their fields. And your formal instruction is complemented by what you will experience of the great museums, theatres, concert halls, galleries and cathedrals you will visit in Oxford, London, Stratford-upon-Avon and beyond.

Participating Tyndale students in their third or fourth year of study (especially in English, History, Biblical Studies and Theology) register for the winter semester as students of Crandall University (New Brunswick) and associate students of Regent’s Park College, Oxford University. Students will travel most days to Oxford, take some meals “in college” at Regent’s Park, and have access to Oxford’s Bodleian library—one of the oldest and finest in the world—for study and research. Course offerings are organized on a two-year cycle, with emphasis on Shakespearean theatre and related literature one year, and on history and non-dramatic literature the next.

This program is offered to a limited number of qualified Tyndale students. Minimum requirements include a CGPA of 3.0 and positive recommendations from two faculty members; the application deadline is April 1.
