Program Description

For a description of the full academic year (Fall 22 - Spring 23) program, view the course catalog

Classical Greece and Rome and Renaissance Italy made some of the Western world's most extraordinary contributions to the written word and the visual arts. These accomplishments continue to captivate artists and thinkers, giving them models and standards to admire, emulate, struggle against, or reject—but rarely to ignore. 

In spring, we will meet on campus for two weeks for additional study and preparation for our studies in Greece and Italy. Once in Europe, we will visit archaeological sites, museums, and other cultural institutions in Athens, Crete, the Peloponnese, Delphi, Rome, and Florence. Between visits, we will hold seminars to discuss what we have seen and read, and students will work on individual projects that will apply what they have learned, including ancient Greek and photography.
