The goal of this study abroad summer session in Greece is to offer students an authentic Hellenic experience.
Students and faculty will explore the major historical sites in mainland Athens, hop the famous Kyclades (Kee-kla-days) Islands, and spend time in the small town of Karystos, located on the southern tip of Evia. While only a couple of hours from Athens by boat, its village-oriented culture and live-off- the-land lifestyle is worlds apart. Students will take courses in Ecology and/or Tourism, where exploring the local habitat, architecture, advertisement, and cuisine will offer an unconventional and refreshing approach to learning.
*Until Nov. 22, all students can apply online for the $500 Faculty-led program stipends. Freshman can apply for the $1,000 Freshman Experience Grant.
