British Gothic Literature: A Horrible Way to Spend June 2021

A study abroad experience that includes one solid month in London and Edinburgh, multiple day trips and outings, opportunities to explore Britain and Europe independently, 6 credits toward the English major or minor, and fulfills requirements for Honors Immersed and a Colloquium requirement.

In British Gothic Literature, we will discuss how British culture uses Gothic monsters to express fears, anxieties, and misgivings about gender & sexuality, nation & empire, race & class. We will read works by Jane Austen, Emily Brontë, R. L. Stevenson, Oscar Wilde, and Arthur Conan Doyle. We will explore the gloomy moors and dark city streets where they set their stories. We will visit art museums, attend the theater, stroll through urban graveyards, and walk down village lanes. For a full reading list and list of activities, check out the program flier

Peer Mentoring with the REACH Program

The REACH Program is seeking volunteer mentors to assist students in the program with the transitions and experiences of college. Mentors aid in providing a “true college experience” for students by sharing time, knowledge, and experiences with their peers. Mentors are role models, supporters, and friends! Interactions can take place on weekdays or weekends, virtually and in-person, and can be anything you would typically do with friends or for school based on your interests. Commit to a short amount of time each week and start building a truly valuable relationship!

Interested students can contact Arianne Bauserman, Mentor Coordinator, at with questions or download a Mentor Information form here.

*Note: Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person interactions must be in compliance with the College of Charleston’s and City of Charleston’s recommendations and policies.
