                      Liverpool Program Application (PDF) - Please fill out and return to Engleman Hall 220.

The Liverpool, England: Atlantic Crossing Program provides students with the opportunity to meet and study with like-minded students at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) in the world's "Capital City of Pop". In Liverpool, students will  learn about the shared historical and cultural roots of two significant coastal cities that played a major role in the international, economic, and cultural development of  the U.S and U.K.

Students will be required to attend meetings with fellow students and Dr. Lee deLisle prior to departure, and develop a research project linked to their current course work, major, and opportunities available in Liverpool. While in Liverpool, students will attend classes with LJMU students in areas relevant to their own programs of study.

In addition to the interaction with LJMU students and faculty, students will have the opportunity to visit many sites important to the identity of Liverpool as well as day trips to the cities of Manchester and Chester.

This is a valuable experience for  those students who may consider a future semester at LJMU.


This program may also serve as a practicum experience for a student in the Tourism, Hospitality & Event concentration, due to student involvement in the planning and logistical management of the program. Students will be required to attend face-to-face meetings with RTSM faculty, online meetings with LJMU counterparts prior to departure, and develop a research project linked to their current course work and concentration. Examples may include an analysis of the festival culture of Liverpool, the role of tourism in the Liverpool economy, the structure of amateur or professional sport in Liverpool, recreation therapy strategies in Liverpool, community leisure services in Liverpool, music as a shared cultural expression and related social issues, and more. Students will attend classes and presentations by LJMU students in areas relevant to their own career interests, and will be offered the option to enroll in a one-credit independent study.
