Study Abroad in Athens, Greece with AAP!

Study Biblical and Classical Literature in Athens, the birthplace of Western Civilization and democracy! Walk the storied city where Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle practiced philosophy. Visit the awe-inspiring Acropolis, the ancient sanctuary dedicated to its patron, the Goddess Athena. See the Parthenon lit up at night, having read the speeches of Pericles, the general and politician who oversaw its construction.

Athens is a living museum that revels in myth, religion, history, and philosophy. At once ancient and modern, the city invokes both passion and pensiveness. Students enrolled in this winter session program will be housed in the heart of the city at The Athens Centre (http://athenscentre.gr), a facility with classroom space, a library, and a computer lab. In addition to visiting numerous sites in and around Athens—including the Acropolis Museum, the Ancient Agora, Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Church of Panagia Kapnikarea, and the Jewish Museum of Greece—we will also make excursions to ancient Delphi, archaeological and natural sites within the Peloponnese, and many other religious, cultural and historical sites.

Over the course of three intensive weeks, we will read classical works like the epics Iliad and Odyssey and compare them with those from the Biblical tradition. Students will be encouraged to delve into the pantheon of Greek gods, retell old myths, solve ancient riddles, follow in the footstep of ancient heroes like Achilles and Odysseus, wander vibrant streets, and enjoy world-renowned souvlaki and coffee, all while reading and discussing classical works in the land where they were composed.

The student accommodations (apartments) are located less than a five-minute walk from The Athens Centre, with double or triple rooms. All of the units have Wi-Fi and kitchens, and there are laundry facilities within the complex. Cafes, tavernas, and bakeries are nearby. The neighborhood is residential and hilly. A welcome meal and departure meal are included in the program fee, as well as all excursion expenses (tour guides, transportation, entrance fees, and overnight accommodation).

Application Deadline: April 20, 2018 at 5 p.m.

Financial need-based scholarships are available to UD undergraduates on a competitive basis. To be considered, students must have a current FAFSA on-file with Student Financial Services. For more details, please see our scholarships page.
