Study Ancient Cultures in Greece

A spring course in Ancient Cultures with study in Greece

The application period for the 2014 program is closed.

The next anticipated Greece program is spring 2016.

This program consists of a 10-week program combining Classics (Ancient Greek Culture) and Art History taught on campus during the spring term, followed by a two-week immersion experience in Greece. 

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 a 3-credit course on Ancient Greek Culture as well as a 1-credit Art History course, creating a Learning Community during the spring trimester. They also may enroll in other courses at Augustana as the summer immersion program will not interfere with spring trimester coursework.  

No knowledge of modern or ancient Greek language is required.

Courses include:  CLASSICS 311: Ancient Greek Culture (3 credits)

                         ART HISTORY 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 2014 program has a fee of $4,925.  This 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.
