The Wroxton Campus is a Jacobean mansion dating from the early 17th century. It is now the home of Wroxton College,
a campus of Fairleigh
At Wroxton College, courses are taught through a combination of lecture, seminar, and tutorials, a method specific to British universities. The College's own British teaching staff is supplemented by visiting lecturers from British universities.
All spring/fall semester students who attend Wroxton College for the first time participate in a special three-credit interdisciplinary program called The Anatomy of Contemporary Britain. This course introduces students to the environment and lifestyle of Britain. Students will reflect on their own country, culture, and values and explore the differences and similarities between the two cultures.
At Wroxton, students select at least two courses from a list of required courses that draw upon the strengths of the faculty, the College's location in central England, and the links between the College and such major British institutions as the Shakespeare Centre, the Shakespeare Institute at the University of Birmingham, the Houses of Parliament, and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. In addition, students select up to three courses in specialized areas.
The academic environment of Wroxton is also suited to students wishing to pursue independent studies within the areas of expertise of the Wroxton faculty.
Courses at Wroxton include literature, history, political science, fine arts, Core Curriculum, and sociology. ALL credits transfer directly and count toward FDU degrees.
Students are also welcome to submit proposals for independent study projects that take advantage of the expertise of the British faculty teaching at Wroxton.
