Biographical/historical note

The University of North Carolina at Asheville started the summer in Oxford program in 1970. The first NC State students joined in 1972 and steadily increased their numbers in subsequent years. In 1976, administrators from both universities met to finalize plans to make NC State a full partner in the Oxford program. At State, the program was jointly sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.

The Oxford program, based in St. Benet's Hall at Oxford University, England, offered courses in British history, art, and Shakespearean drama. The program gave students the opportunity to experience life and study in Oxford, as well as take excursions to surrounding sites such as Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, and the city of London.

As of 2016, under the name Oxford Study Abroad, the program is administered by University Scholars and the Office of Study Abroad and is based at the Somerville College of Oxford.
