Program Notes
This program is highly competitive and will accept only a limited number of applicants. Interview appointments and acceptance decisions are at the discretion of the faculty director.
Please review the CGPS COVID-19 Updates page before applying to a study abroad program.

All applicants must have a valid passport by the program’s application deadline.
Your passport’s expiration date must be more than six months after the program ends. If you do not have a current passport, apply through the U.S. State Department. It takes an average of 8-11 weeks (2-3 months) to process a passport.

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.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees and tuition.Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.
Program Description

Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece, will be the host for the Greece MSEG/PHYS/HIST Winter 2023 study abroad program. The second-largest city of Greece after Athens, Thessaloniki is known as the open-air museum of History with numerous historical landmarks. Aristotle University is one of the oldest universities in Greece and is known for its engineering and liberal arts programs alike. This study abroad program offers a combination of courses equally available to both engineers and non-engineers. Courses offered include MSEG 201 (required by several engineering departments), HIST 339 (satisfies the upper-level elective requirement), and PHYS 143 (satisfies group D requirement for several LAS Departments). PHYS 143 and HIST 339 have no pre-requisites and can be taken by all non-engineers. Depending on the COVID 19 related travel restrictions, the course material in this program will be enhanced by several excursions to places like CERN, Geneva, (PHYS), Athens (MSEG, HIST), Poly Milano, Italy (MSEG, PHYS), etc. All stays associated with this program, in Thessaloniki, and during the excursions, will be in hotels and hostels. All lunches during the school days and several meals during the excursions will be included in the program fee. Excursions include history and industrial tours to Geneva, Milan, Athens, etc. as permitted by University guidelines.

The Program Fee includes housing, some meals, academic and cultural excursions, guest speakers, in-country transportation to/from excursion sites and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Greece, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Greece. 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.

ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcomed and encouraged to study abroad, but should be aware 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. 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
Honors credit may be available. Check with the faculty director and the Honors program for approval (check before departure).

HIST 339-070: Topics in European History (3 credits)
Explores the political, social, cultural, and economic history of Europe, with a focus or theme that touches on one or more countries. The emphasis when taught in Newark is on particular aspects of European history distinct from national narratives. The syllabi are typically complemented by visits to museums and appropriate historic sites when taught abroad. Topics vary but often focus on a sweeping historical survey of the particular European country in which a Study Abroad program is taking place. This course will be taught by a local instructor.
