Greece Summer Study Abroad

Landmark in Greece


Contact: Dr. Shannon Byrne,

The Greece 2022 Summer Study Abroad Program is tentatively scheduled for May 31 (departure) - June 28 (return). More information will appear soon. We offer Creative Perspectives, Historical Perspectives, Writing and Diversity Flags, and Philosophy. Students earn 6 credit hours and have a selection of core courses to choose from.

We stay at 3-star hotels and divide our time between Athens and the rest Greece as follows (not necessarily in this order):

  • roughly 12 nights in Athens
  • 2 nights on the island Santorini
  • 3 nights on the island Naxos (with optional excursion to the islands Mykonos and Delos)
  • 4 nights in Peloponnesus (Olympia; Tolo for Corinth, Mycenae, Epidaurus, Naplion)
  • 2 nights in Delphi
  • 2 nights in Kalambaka (Meteora)

The tentative cost for the program is $6290, which includes:

  • tuition for two core courses (see here for details)
  • 3 star hotels with air conditioning throughout the program
  • all transportation in Greece (private buses on land and ferry reservations for islands)
  • metro passes in Athens
  • admission to all sites and museums
  • breakfast and dinner each day

Not included in the tentative cost: transatlantic airfare and lunch.
