Meet the Faculty Director

Hello! I'm Dr. Will Sherman, and I'll be the faculty director for this program. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Religious Studies at UNC-Charlotte. Check out my faculty page here.


My research and teaching focuses on the history of Islam and Muslim societies, and, as part of my research, I've spent lots of time in London. It's a city I truly love.


I led this study abroad program last year, and I hope you'll join me in London for Spring Break 2020! Please reach out to me at if you have any questions at all!
