  • Global and Cultural Diversity credit
  • Humanities
Through one very intensive week in Greece, students become acquainted with the birthplace of Western Civilization: its landscapes, monuments, and other material traces. With field trips to Delphi, Mycenae, Epidaurus, and Sounion, you will also encounter Modern Greece and receive instruction in modern Greek. However, the overwhelming emphasis lies on Classical Athens and the historical-cultural setting for the emergence of Western moral philosophy.
