Now entering its forty-ninth year, the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s Summer Seminar at Trinity College, Oxford is one of the oldest American summer programs at Oxford University. It is still guided by its original intention: to introduce a wide range of students to the best of Oxford University's academic and social traditions. Participants also have the opportunity to explore England and Europe, both on their own and on Friday field trips.

The 2015 seminar begins on Saturday, July 4, and end on Friday, August 14.

We hope you'll learn more about the seminar, faculty, courses and college life as you explore our site.
