Under the leadership of William H. Crouch, President of Georgetown College, and Paul S. Fiddes, Principal of Regent’s Park College, a partnership was formed between the two schools in 1998 for the mutual edification of the educational enterprise of both schools. Since then, around 90 Georgetown College students have participated in the Oxford Tutorial Program, and recently students from Regent’s Park have begun to participate in classes and tutorials at Georgetown in preparation for finals at Oxford University.
Georgetown has also placed students into the Master of Theology program at Regent’s Park College, and recently one of our first three year accelerated degree graduates received a second BA at Oxford in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE).┬áSeveral Georgetown College faculty members have spent time doing research, giving lectures, and otherwise participating in college life at Oxford as a result of the partnership–in this year alone, four faculty members will be doing projects in the Georgetown flat in college at Oxford.
The Oxford Programs have become an academic centerpiece at Georgetown College, and we hope that more and more students and faculty members will come to reap the benefits of participation. ┬áPlease consult the Oxford Programs Overview for a list of opportunities available to Georgetown College students.
