OVERVIEW

Greece
This summer, come meet the Greeks and awaken a sense of the past that you will never forget.  This study abroad program will introduce you to a small country with a big history as we explore a 3000 year process of globalization that the Greeks began.  From its cafes, to its beaches, to its discotheques, Greece is a culture of modernisms that lives cheek to jowl with its epic past.

We will read great literature in the place where it was written, regard great art in the place where it was made, reimagine the practices of ancient rites, and walk in the geography of heroes and gods. You will witness the coming of the Romans and barbarians and consider the fate of a culture caught between tourists and tourism and the encroachment of foreign bankers and businessmen. Why has this rocky outcropping and its Aegean islands drawn the world to its door?  That’s easy, because as the Greeks say, E Ellada Einai Omorphia: Greece is beautiful.

Location: Athens, Greece

The beginning of summer in Greece has perfect, sunny and warm 80 degree weather, with little clouds or rain. Children are not yet out of school, so places are open and not crowded.
