The Advanced Studies in England Summer School offers students the opportunity to undertake a five week course of study for credit in the world-heritage city of Bath, England.

Summer School comprises two courses. The first is a Seminar Course taught by a professor from one of ASE's US Affiliate Institutions - these change from year to year; the second is a Core Course taught by British faculty. Seminar Courses vary from one summer to the next (see website for details); the Core Courses are Bath, Britain and the Black Atlantic, which explores the involvement of Bath and Bristol in the trade of enslaved Africans and the writings of some of those most profoundly touched by it, Jane Austen in Bath, examining those novels by Jane Austen which make significant use of Bath, and a history and archaeology class, The Romans in Britain.

Classes are held daily from Monday to Thursday, with Fridays reserved for course-related study and study trips. In addition, there are whole-programme visits to Glastonbury, Stonehenge and Oxford as well as an all-inclusive three-day weekend in Dorset featuring cliff walks, sandy beaches, a visit to Corfe Castle and a lunch stop at the magnificent house and gardens of Stourhead.

Housing for the Summer School is in historic town houses and apartments throughout the city centre of Bath. These are well equipped for self-catering.
