We believe that studying abroad is a critical component of an undergraduate educational experience. The Classics Department is committed to presenting study abroad opportunities, especially involving archaeological materials in Greece and Italy.
With support from the Office of International Programs and Study Abroad, we offer a variety of options, lasting a week, a summer, or an entire semester.
If you are interested in these or other opportunities, contact the Classics Study Abroad Coordinator, Dr. Rask.
Student-Faculty Research Over the Summer
In 2016, students spent 28 days in Greece working with ancient artifacts at the archaeological sites of the Athenian Agora and ancient Corinth. When not visiting the beautiful island of Santorini or eating local Greek food, they 3-D scanned artifacts and studied excavation notebooks for course credit. Stay tuned for more summer fieldwork opportunities in Greece!

Spring Breakaway in Greece
The Classics Department also offers a Spring Breakaway course, called ‘Cult and Cosmos in Ancient Athens.' We learn about what technology teaches us about the religions and philosophical beliefs in ancient Athens and spend a week in Athens visiting museums, wandering the ancient and modern city, and hiking the countryside.
