The program will be conducted on the campus of the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies (OCHJS).
"The Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies (OCHJS) is located on its own campus in Yarnton, four miles from the city center of Oxford. OCHJS is a recognized independent post-graduate center of the University of Oxford whose students obtain an Oxford University master's degree," said Dr. Irven Resnick, Professor and Judaic Studies Chair of Excellence. Resnick, who will also be at OCHJS during the summer 2013 program, has taught at the Oxford Centre and has been a Senior Associate at the Centre since 2003.
The OCHJS campus offers a modern library with more than 100,000 volumes. The OCHJS centerpiece is Yarnton Manor, which houses classrooms and administration offices. Although Yarnton Manor's foundation dates to the eleventh century, the present structure is Jacobean, from the seventeenth century. Other buildings on the estate provide accommodation for students and visiting fellows. Its gardens and grounds are quite well known. UTC will have full and exclusive use of the OCHJS campus during the summer session.
The UTC classes at Oxford will meet at regular, specified times. In addition to in-class course work, students will travel, usually two days each week, to sites related to course themes. Students will have Fridays and weekends off to pursue other travel interests of their own.
