Admission Requirements & Program Highlights

Experience the cultural richness of the ancient world when you focus on foundational periods for these cultures—when Greeks and Romans were asking themselves profound questions still important today. What is a citizen? A family? A god? A nation? What is freedom? Career paths can include teaching and law (with additional studies), travel and tourism, and museum curatorship, to name a few.

Life After Graduation

Jeffrey Masse

“This program taught me to be an independent critical thinker and to articulate myself in speech and writing while always remaining attentive to detail. The faculty worked with me individually to ensure I could succeed beyond my undergraduate degree by providing me with enriching educational experiences both in the classroom and in Greece. The program prepared me to participate effectively in the modern Western world by guiding me through its philosophical, historical, and cultural origins.”
