Oxford Study Centre
- Status: Active Chapter
Welcome to Ratio Christi's new partner organization: the Oxford Study Centre!
The Oxford Study Centre (OSC) is an educational program combining a unique worldview approach with the academic strengths of Oxford, England.
At the Oxford Study Centre you will study with Oxford tutors. These are not lectures but concentrated and personalized tutorials with world-class scholars. You are inducted into the realms of Oxford life and enabled to foster your skills of research, analysis, and communication. Among other areas, you may study facets of literature or law, politics or philosophy, theology, the arts, or the sciences.
OSC is a unique study abroad program with an interactive worldview course that combines agressive reading, open and engaging explorations, weekly worldview colloquia, and personalized mentoring with Kevin James Bywater. The OSC worldviews course runs concurrently and in tandem with Oxford tutorials.
The combination is a substantial 8-week summer term, a 15-week autumn term, and a 15-week winter/spring term.
In coordination with home institutions, undergraduate students may receive upwards of 8 credit hours for the summer term and 18 credit hours for Michaelmas (autumn) or Hilary (winter/spring) terms.
We accept singles and couples, undergraduates and graduates, those currently enrolled in college or university and those who are not.
