Students will visit sites throughout the Greek mainland and islands to explore the ancient world as they travel through the modern.

Academics:  Students in this program will be enrolled in two on-campus courses followed by a required overseas tour in Greece. Students who enroll in both courses (highly recommended) will earn credit for a Learning Community. No knowledge of modern or ancient Greek language is required.

Seniors should pay attention to the timing of this program.  Senior students who need any portion of this coursework in order to complete degree requirements may not graduate in the spring. They must apply as a summer graduate, but can choose to participate in the commencement ceremony if they wish. Contact the Registrar for your questions. 

Program sites include Athens, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi, Crete, Santorini, and Mykonos.

Program Cost:  The fee for the Greece program is tentatively set at $5,300.  A final program cost will be made available in December 2014, prior to program enrollment.  The program fee includes airfare, ground and sea transportation, accomodations, excursions and site visits, museum entry fees and medical insurance.  Fee does not include non-group meals and discretionary spending.
