Join GEO to learn more about the Oxford Semester Experience program for spring 2024.  

Oxford Semester Experience: Launched in 1995, the Oxford Semester Experience is GEO's most prestigious program. Each semester, organized with our partner in Oxford, a small group of high achieving Mason undergraduate and graduate students are selected to study as affiliated students at one of a variety of Oxford colleges. The world-famous University of Oxford is the prestigious alma mater of many presidents and prime ministers. 

Each semester consists of two parts: a traditional course taught by the attending Mason faculty (Academic Director) and the Oxford Term when students take part in traditional Oxford tutorials. Oxford's unique tutorial system gives participants unparalleled individual attention through weekly one-on-one meetings with an Oxford scholar. Each student is guided through an intellectual exploration of their chosen discipline. Oxford tutorials are designed as 1-on-1, or small group, intensive learning experiences between the Mason student and Oxford faculty. 

Tutorials are offered in the social sciences, theoretical sciences, business, and the humanities. During tutorials, students are expected to do substantial independent library work and periodically produce written essays and oral presentations. At the close of the program, participants produce a portfolio of their work, which consists of a two-page reflection of their experience and copies of their tutorial work.
