The College of William & Mary’s Department of Classical Studies has established an intensive four-week summer program in Ancient Greek Studies, focused on Athens and Nafplio. Students visit archaeological sites, and study monuments and works of art of classical antiquity in their original setting.
During the program, approximately two weeks are devoted to excursions to sites within Athens and the surrounding area. The rest of the time is spent in Nafplio, and other places of interest such as Delphi, Olympia and others, visiting sites and museums. Housing and excursion logistics are provided by our institutional partner, College Year Athens (CYA). During the stay in Athens, students will live in furnished apartments within a short walking distance from the offices and classrooms of (CYA). While in Nafplio and other locations, students will stay in double or triple occupancy hotels. Students will receive lunches while in Athens at the CYA cafeteria, and breakfasts while in hotels. This is included in the program fee. The apartments in Athens have fully equipped kitchens to prepare your other meals. While in other locations, students may receive a meal stipend for lunches.
All students will earn a total of 6 credits for the program. Students will take CLCV 489: The Ancient City, an on-site course in Greece (for 4 credits) which satisfies both GER4a and GER5. Course requirements will include the completion of assigned readings, site reports, a journal and a final exam or essay.Students may choose to add on a research component to the course and receive 1-3 additional credits by enrolling in CLCV 494: Undergraduate Research Abroad in Classical Studies and writing a research paper. If selected for participation by faculty, students may also add the research symposium in the following fall for an additional 1 credit. The total number of credits that can be earned in this program is 4 without the research component. If the research component is undertaken, then students may also earn 1-3 credits for the summer research and 1 additional credit for the fall research symposium, for a total of up to 8 credits in the program. Grades will appear on W&M transcripts and will be included in GPA calculations.
There is a required 1 credit course to be taken in Spring 2015, which you will be registered for following your acceptance into the program. This course is designed specifically for students going on the summer program and is intended to enhance your cross-cultural understanding of Greece and to cover a variety of pre-departure questions. The scheduling of this course will be dependent on the class times possible for the program participants.
Please note that this program runs alternately with the Rome/Pompeii program on odd numbered years.
