The Oxford Programme for Undergraduate Studies (OPUS) combines traditional Oxford tutorials that involve the research and writing of scholarly essays in student-selected topic areas with one Britain-centered small-group tutorial on Shakespeare, C. S. Lewis, or British politics. Because students can design their own tutorial subjects, classicists of all levels can have both their needs and their interests accommodated, sometimes to a very specific degree. Students on this program become associate members of various Oxford colleges, which connects them to the academic and social traditions of Oxford life.

Admission to OPUS through CUA is highly competitive. OPUS also admits applicants separately, but there are financial implications to this arrangement: consult the CUAbroad office for details.

The OPUS page of the CUAbroad website and the OPUS program website provide more information.
