Voyage into Greek Civilization Summer Program

Study in Greece in collaboration with the Department of Classical Studies at Boston University and BU Philhellenes, and the BA Program in the Archeology, History and Literature of Ancient Greece at the School of Philosophy of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens organized the “Voyage into Greek Civilization Summer Program”. Combining academic courses with cultural adventures, this 5week study abroad offered participants from the US the opportunity to dive into Greek culture. The program’s academic part included 2 courses: a) a Modern Greek language and culture course, as well as a Philosophy course entitled: Virtue and the virtues of a leader in Ancient Greek philosophy, designed by exceptional Professors of the School of Philosophy of NKUA. Moreover, including a plethora of cultural activities such as walks, dance classes and theater, excursions and visits at archeological sites, museums and various landmarks of the Greek civilization, the summer school provided students with a unique opportunity of cultural exploration and immersion in the Greek world. During their 5week stay in Greece, our students visited more than 15 museums and sites of historic significance including the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum, the National and Archeological Museum, Nafplio, Mycenae, Epidaurus, Delphi, Sounio, Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center & the National Library of Greece, the Hellenic Parliament, Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum, between others. Highlighting the cultural treasures of Greece, and its vibrant way of life, this Voyage into Greek Civilization enabled participants to create unforgettable memories. Furthermore, from an academic viewpoint, this exemplary summer course promotes internationalization of Greek higher education, strengthening the academic ties between two prominent universities – the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and Boston University, and cultivates a fertile ground for further academic and cultural synergies between Greece and the US.
