Richmond, The American International University in London to hold American Studies event for students

Richmond, The American International University in London to hold American Studies workshop for year 11, 12 and 13 students

Understanding America in the 21st century is more essential now than ever.  If any schools in the London/south east area have any year 11, 12 or 13 students who may be interested in exploring, even studying America in more detail, a free event is being held at Richmond, The American International University in London.

The American Studies workshop, to be held at the University’s Richmond campus (Queen’s Road, Richmond upon Thames, TW10 6JP) on Friday 22 November, from 9.30am to 1.30pm, will be open to a number of schools within easy reach of the University.  Lunch at the University will be provided for a maximum of 50 students in total across schools in the area, on a first come, first served basis.  It will be relevant for any students interested in finding out more about American Studies, particularly those doing A’ levels in History, Politics, English Literature and Media Studies.

Led by several internationally renowned faculty at Richmond including Dr Michael F. Keating, (Professor of International Political Economy), Neil Mackie, (Teaching Fellow in History and American Studies), Dr Nicola Mann (Associate Professor of Communications and Visual Cultures) and Dr Daliany Kersh (Assistant Professor in International History and International Relations), the workshop will introduce students to American history, politics and culture in both an educational and engaging format.  It will provide students with an insight into doing a BA (Hons) in American Studies at Richmond which encompasses Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as US film, literature and pop culture in the USA.

The workshop will also enable attendees to get a real taste of university life, with current students available who can give the inside track on the student experience. 

Richmond, The American International University in London, which is set in a fantastic six-acre site at the top of Richmond Hill, is the only University in the UK to award both a UK and US degree for every programme studied.  With a US liberal arts approach, the educational system at Richmond provides students with a broad knowledge of the world combined with in-depth study in a specific area of interest.
