The Citadel Summer in London Program is a four-week program that offers a range of international cultural experiences and courses unavailable to students at their home institutions. Students take classes and live in the heart of London's Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, a centrally located area close to many of the city's universities, libraries, museums, theaters, and famous tourists. South Kensington, one of London's most attractive and desirable locations, provides a beautiful and historic living and learning environment for students.

All courses take full advantage of England's cultural resources by including learning activities such as literary London tours; tours of Muslim areas and Islamic cultural sites; a guided tour of Parliament; a backstage tour of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre; trips to Stonehenge, the Lake District of England, and the ancient Roman city of Bath; and optional long-weekend trips to other European countries (including Italy, Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Scotland, and Ireland).

Because London is the largest city in Europe, there are almost endless opportunities for extracurricular activities such as attending live music performances (from small club shows to huge outdoor concerts at Wembley Stadium and in Hyde Park); attending theater performances (London is widely regarded as the theater capital of the world); attending screenings of a wide range of movies (London's film scene is excellent, and it's not unusual for films to premiere in London months or even years before they make it to America); visiting amazing museums (admission to all public museums, including world-class facilities such as the British Museum and the National Gallery, is free thanks to the British government); and attending sports events (students have attended World Cup qualifying games for England's national soccer team at Wembley Stadium, home games of England's national rugby team, and the Wimbledon tennis tournament, for example).

-Students will have the opportunity to engage in the following activities:
*Overnight trip to Lake District to study Romantic Poets
*Various academic field trips around London
*See a play at The Globe Theater
*Screenings of a wide range of movies
*Outdoor concerts at Wembley Stadium
*Various sporting events
