    What Will I Study?

    The Oxford Summer Programme (OSP) is a four-week experience, during which time students hone their research and writing skills and delve into their chosen disciplines, occasionally traveling the United Kingdom to explore relationship between Christianity and the development of the British Isles.

    Seminars and tutorials (one-on-one mentorships sessions with expert Oxford scholars) feature specialized topics under expert Oxford academics in the areas of English language and literature, history, including the history of art and history of science, philosophy, theology and the study of religion. The programme is structured for rising college sophomores, juniors, and seniors, graduate and seminary students, non-traditional students, teachers and those enrolled in continuing education programs. OSP students earn six semester hours of credit.

    Biola students attend the Oxford Summer Programme independent of Biola and transfer the credit upon completion of the summer programme. All fees are paid directly to the CCCU. Students are required to complete substitution request forms prior to departure.
