Honors at Glasgow

Left Nav

The Honors Program offers a unique education abroad opportunity with the University of Glasgow in Scotland and Berry College International Experiences. The Honors semester at the University of Glasgow will allow you to:

  • Complete an Honors course elective, The Ideas and Influences of the Scottish Enlightenment: 18th to the 21st Centuries.

This course fulfills an Honors elective and a Foundations requirement at Berry. The course is taught in the traditional Oxbridge model of public lectures and small group seminars. Leading scholars will provide over-arching ideas in the public lectures, which are then further developed through discussion in small group seminars/tutorials. Special cultural immersion outings are planned for this course.  

  • Take an additional 2-3 courses in your major or minor.  

The University of Glasgow has both breadth and depth in most undergraduate majors. Science, pre-med and pre-vet Honors students will have access to a sophisticated range of disciplines and courses. Fine arts, liberal arts and business majors will have an exciting variety of course options. All Honors at Glasgow students will have access to level 3 and some level 4 courses not usually available to other study abroad students. Studio art majors will attend the Glasgow School of Art.

  • Study at an internationally recognized university.
  • Participate in special cultural immersion events for Honors students both inside and outside the classroom.
  • Participate in service learning opportunities. 
  • Gain access to possible internships.
  • Meet some of the 3,000 other international students from 24 countries around the world.
  • Meet and befriend Honors students from our consortium member institutions in the U.S.  
  • Travel in the U.K. and the European continent.
  • Live in a “different” but accessible culture. 

Honors students are encouraged to consider this program for their Sophomore or Junior year.  Honors students may enroll either for fall or spring term through Berry College International Experiences. A separate application to the University of Glasgow will also be completed after approval by the International Experiences committee.

Scholarships and federal loans usually apply toward tuition. There are no additional tuition charges for this semester abroad at Glasgow.
