Advanced Studies in England: ASE Bath
Washington and Lee is one of thirteen U. S. colleges and universities affiliated with Advanced Studies in England (ASE), an undergraduate humanities program based in the city of Bath that offers qualified students a one- or two-semester or a summer experience. Students live in Georgian townhouses near the city center. The seminar-sized classes taught by British faculty often include study trips designed to deepen the students’ understanding of the particular curricular subjects and English culture. ASE is formally associated with University College, Oxford University where students study for a 9-day residency each semester. Students also spend a week each semester in Stratford-upon-Avon while attending the Royal Shakespeare Company productions.
