The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

Program Description
Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of an ancient world as you walk through the bright lights of modern Athens. Explore early forms of Western theatre, athletics, war, and politics in the balmy Mediterranean sun. See how the competitive spirit of Greek antiquity – the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat – continues to live on to today.

The world of ancient Greece was brimming with things that continue to seize our attention. Using the metropolitan city of Athens as our base, we’ll visit ancient theatres, athletic centers, temples concealing fascinating rituals, and treasuries housing tokens of military victories. Students will learn firsthand the lasting legacy of Greek antiquity. Common sites visited during the winter semester include the lofty sanctuary at Delphi, the renowned theatres Athens, Epidaurus, and Corinth, the Bronze Age palace of Mycenae, the island of Aegina, the stadium of Nemea, and Olympia, the site of the ancient Olympic games.

Students will be housed in private apartments in downtown Athens supplied with kitchens for students to prepare their own meals. On overnight site visits, students will be housed in hotels. The program includes welcome and farewell suppers.

Whether you're interested in exploring ancient ruins, the productions of the great Greek tragedians, legal and political dramas, or the timeless contests of athletes and warriors, you'll find it here in this journey into the distant past. The exciting world of ancient Greece awaits!

The Program Fee includes lodging, excursions, medical insurance, and several group meals.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Greece and airport transfers in the United States. The program officially begins when students arrive in Athens.

ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
Program Courses
Students must enroll in all credit-bearing courses for a grade. Only the UNIV (zero credit) course may be taken pass/fail. Audit registration is not permitted on UD Travel Study. Please refer to the University Catalog to verify requirements and prerequisites
All students must enroll in at least 3 credits, as well as the 0-credit UNIV course.
LLCU 330-070: Victors and Spoils: Competition in Ancient Greece (3 credits)
This course will explore various aspects of the ancient Greek world that cluster around the concept of “competition”. It seems to be an innate desire within us to want to challenge ourselves and others. Students will investigate how such impulses manifested themselves in the ancient world; it will emerge that there are many connections between ancient and modern experiences. Specific topics of competition to be addressed include theater, sports, military, and politics.

Situated in Athens, the course allows visitations to several sites within and outside the city where these competitions took place. By seeing these places firsthand, students will gain a better sense of how and why these events occurred, and how they became prominent features of the intellectual and physical landscapes of Greek antiquity and the modern Western world.
