Attending the summer Capstone in London/Paris is a great way to experience these two historic cities. This short-term, two week program, provides students with the opportunity to learn about the history, society, and culture of the capitals of the United Kingdom and France. London and Paris provide visitors ample sites to see, great food to enjoy, and plenty of fun while there.
Because our history is intimately tied to both the United Kingdom and France, we can gain a better understanding of our own circumstances, by visiting historical and interesting sites in London and Paris. We have heard about and seen pictures of many of the sites we will see on the trip, but this indirect learning in no way compares to visiting and seeing them firsthand. For example, to many students, who previously made this trip, the experience of visiting such sites as Windsor Castle, a resident home of the Queen, and observing Paris from the height of the Eiffel Tower, opened whole new horizons of appreciation and understanding. The British Museum in London, and the Louvre in Paris are examples of some of the most preeminent museums in the world, therefore, we will take advantage of opportunities to visit these and other museums, because they are so valuable to our learning.
