About the Program
The Azusa Oxford Semester enables 25 junior and senior students to become associate students at several Oxford University colleges in Oxford, England. The program is administered in affiliation with the Oxford Programme for Undergraduate Studies (OPUS). Applicants are expected to possess well-defined academic objectives, intellectual maturity, self-discipline, and evidence of excellence in writing and research. A minimum cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 3.40 or higher and a minimum major GPA of 3.6 or higher for undergraduates is required for admission to the program.
Purpose and Objectives
- Cultivate and enhance written, oral, and critical-thinking skills, creativity, and scholarship by means of the one-on-one Oxford tutorial system
- Provide an opportunity for in-depth study, analysis, synthesis, and mastery of a subject relevant to the student’s major
- Enable qualified students to study and explore questions of faith, living, and learning in a rigorous academic culture, which permits interactions with other national and international students who may or may not share their Christian worldview
- Enrich students’ contextual learning by means of travel-as-text experiences, which introduce students to the culture of history and the contemporary present
