Oxford Program Introduction
The city of Oxford sits at the meeting place of the Thames and Cherwell Rivers, about sixty miles northwest of London. The 39 colleges that form a core element of Oxford University dominate its lovely city center. Oxford is the oldest English-language university in the world and has been in existence for more than 8 centuries. A unique aspect of the Montag Center for Overseas Studies in Oxford is the tutorial requirement. All participants are expected to devote a minimum of 6 units of their coursework towards the tutorial, which provides an opportunity for focusing on a particular academic topic in a very intense, in-depth format.
