Program Notes
Program Description
Study Biblical and Classical Literature in Athens, the birthplace of Western Civilization and democracy! Walk the storied city where Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle practiced philosophy. Visit the awe-inspiring Acropolis, the ancient sanctuary dedicated to its patron, the Goddess Athena. See the Parthenon lit up at night, having read the speeches of Pericles, the general and politician who oversaw its construction.

Athens is a living museum that revels in myth, religion, history, and philosophy. At once ancient and modern, the city invokes both passion and pensiveness. Students enrolled in this winter session program will be housed in the heart of the city at The Athens Centre (http://athenscentre.gr), a facility with classroom space, a library, and a computer lab. In addition to visiting numerous sites in and around Athens—including the Acropolis Museum, the Ancient Agora, Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Church of Panagia Kapnikarea, and the Jewish Museum of Greece—we will also make excursions to ancient Delphi and historic sites within the Peloponnese.

Over the course of three intensive weeks, we will read classical works like the epics Iliad and Odyssey and compare them with those from the Biblical tradition. Students will be encouraged to delve into the pantheon of Greek gods, retell old myths, solve ancient riddles, follow in the footstep of ancient heroes like Achilles and Odysseus, wander vibrant streets, and enjoy world-renowned souvlaki and coffee, all while reading and discussing classical works in the land where they were composed.

The Program Fee includes lodging, excursions, medical insurance and a farewell meal.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Greece and airport tranfers in the United States.The program officially begins when students arrive in Athens. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare.
