The London Project will be one of the two UNH courses that UNH students participating in the UNH London Program will be required to take. This course will guide students through the research, writing/producing, and presentation of a project that explores one very narrow slice of London. The goal is to allow each student to gain insight and understanding of a subject that intrigues him/her and to present findings in a form that is appropriate for the subject and the talents of the author. Those forms could range from an academic research paper, a piece of creative writing, a multimedia slide show, a video, a podcast, or perhaps a Power Point presentation. By asking students to become fluent in one London issue, this course complements the other UNH course, Introduction to British Culture, which covers a range of British customs, challenges, and cultural elements.
