England: Norwich Humanities and Sciences
Dickinson operates one of the largest study abroad programs based at the University of East Anglia (UEA), located just a short bus ride from the center of Norwich. Typically, 25-30 students participate in the Norwich Humanities Program each year, and 10-15 students participate in the Norwich Science Program each semester, with several remaining at UEA for the entire academic year.
Classes are held at UEA's campus on "The Broads," 270 acres of open parkland on the outskirts of Norwich with views of rivers, woods and meadows from all angles. University buildings are connected by elevated pedestrian walkways.
UEA is well known for the quality of its academic programs, and the structure of the Dickinson programs allows students to select courses from a variety of "schools" (departments) at UEA while enrolled in two to three Dickinson core courses. Many UEA faculty members are leading scholars in their fields, and the university library contains 500,000 volumes and more than 2,500 periodicals. The campus offers many social opportunities through various clubs and organizations, and a new state-of-the-art sports facility provides for recreational pursuits.
At UEA students live in “The Village”, co-ed university housing which consists of fully furnished, single rooms, on floors of 12 students who share common areas and a kitchen (a great place for tea time).
