Imagine taking Maricopa summer courses while exploring England, France, and Scotland! Your global academic adventure will contrast the historical, artistic, anthropological, and social contexts of these very different countries and cultures.
Spend four weeks exploring the history and modernity-both above and below ground-of some of the world’s greatest cities including London, England, Paris, France, and Edinburgh Scotland.
Based in Nottingham, England, your “home” for a month is associated with the legend of Robin Hood in the Sherwood Forest and the defeat of Richard III, former king of England. Nottingham is a vibrant, walkable city in the East Midlands region of central England where the average temperature in July is 70 degrees!

Nottingham is in an area of England that knows and celebrates its history while anticipating its future. Once engaged in farming, industry, lace, and candy making, its future lies in its major universities and colleges, world class health care facilities and a stunning amount of new business and housing construction. The people are generous and outgoing with a sense of community pride and accomplishment.
