What's much better than a muggle college course such as Psychology 101 or Spanish II? Try
Advanced Potions, Defense Against the Dark Arts and Charms. Why? Because these courses require the use of magic, duh! And at California State University, San Marcos, you get to see what it's like to be a wizard college student by enrolling in the British Culture & Harry Potter study abroad course.
Okay, we lied: You won't actually learn these things in this study abroad program, but what you will learn is still pretty magical, especially if you spent half of your adolescence waiting until midnight to buy each new Harry Potter book and then proceeded to stain the pages in books 4 through 7 with your tears.
Basically, the course will allow you to explore the locations that inspired the novels and films, including:
-Harry Potter sites such as Westminster Underground, Houses of Parliament, Scotland Yard, King's Cross Station and many more!
-Warner Brothers Studios, where the films were made.
-Historic Lacock Village, still paved with cobblestones, where filmmakers shot scenes of Lily and James Potter's home, Professor Slughorn's house, and Professor Snape's classroom.
-Beautiful Gloucester Cathedral, film location for Hogwarts School.
And that's just only a few of the places.
If you're a CSUSM student, you better take this course and let us mere muggles know what it's like. And don't forget your Marauder's Map!
