Missouri London Offers Chance to Bring Rock N’ Roll History to Life

In summer of 2013 Truman students have the opportunity to join students from other institutions to explore London and Liverpool through the Missouri London study abroad program.

While abroad, students may earn credit, of which they can choose to apply to their JINS or Aesthetic modes. Gregory Jones, professor of music, will be offering his specially formatted JINS 306 course—with a curriculum created centrally around the English locale.  

Students will explore the roots of rock music in London by visiting neighborhoods and clubs related to music legends such as The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, The Sex Pistols and other influential groups. 

The class will also travel to Liverpool. A special stop at the Cavern Club is included so that participants can hear firsthand accounts of The Beatles as well as their role in changing the music industry of their era. 

The course runs from May 22-June 15. For more information regarding this program, visit the program website programs.capa.org/mlp or email grjones@truman.edu.
