Walk in the Stadium of Olympia, home to the original Games

This summer study abroad program will introduce you to the wonders of Greece - both ancient and modern. How has this fascinating country shaped so much of Western civilization? Explore ancient Greek history, art, religion and culture as well as life in contemporary Greece. Through orientation sessions, lectures and extensive field trips, you will get a feel for the three-dimensional realities of ancient monuments, as well as for the landscape of Greece and its important role in the story of its people.

Your studies will begin in Athens, where you will visit several of its archaeological treasures: the Acropolis, the ancient Agora, the Kerameikos, and the National Archaeological Museum. Next, you will travel to other sites on mainland Greece to observe some of the centers of prehistoric Mycenaean civilization and sites relating to ancient Greek religion such as Delphi, Isthmia and Nemea.

  • Discover why there are few visible remains of the Spartans and visualize the battle of Marathon from the plain on which it was fought.

  • Walk in the stadium at Olympia-home to the original games-while observing the enormity of the project Athens undertook by hosting the 2004 Olympics.

  • Enjoy learning outside the classroom as you experience Greek life and meet its wonderful people.
