Cornerstone students (any major eligible, though particularly designed for the Humanities major) participate in a three credit tutorial in Oxford taught by Oxford professors. Students also take a three credit course taught by Cornerstone faculty. Cornerstone students receive Cornerstone credits, but are also considered associate members (students) of an Oxford college giving them all of the privileges of Oxford students (such as the use of the Bodelian Library, participation in campus clubs and dining in hall).
The CU Oxford program started in 2008 and includes several opportunities for coursework. Students are able to take a course on C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien with Dr. Michael Pasquale, linguistics professor and director of the TESOL program at CU. Students also become associate members of Oxford University and undertake tutorial-style studies with Oxford professors. The CU program in Oxford also includes tours around the UK, such as day trips to London and Windsor Castle. Students are able to join in the culture and activities in Oxford and participate in intermural sports and social clubs. A key aspect of the CU Oxford program is partnering with local ESL programs to provide teaching and tutoring within conversational ESL programs. These courses are planned for Monday and Tuesday evenings and include informal times for socializing and English conversational practice during the rest of the week.
