Study Ancient Cultures in Greece

A spring course in Ancient Cultures with study in Greece (Spring 2016)



This program consists of 10-week on-campus coursework in Classics (Ancient Greek Culture) and a 2-week tour of Greece with ongoing study in Classics and Art History.  

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 courses, one which spans the on-campus and overseas program and the other contained within the Greece Tour program.  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.

     Courses:  CLAS 311: Ancient Greek Culture (3 credits)

                    ARTH 360: Greek Art (1 credit)

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, Corinth, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi 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.
