Society and Politics in
Conducted in English
Study in Greece, the birthplace of Western civilization, and the land of poets,
philosophers, politicians, and artists. The country is a spectacular natural
beauty, where mountains meet the sea, islands sparkle in the sun-drenched blue
ocean, and bleached ancient monuments tower over beaches and olive tree groves.
Over its long history, Greece produced magnificent achievements in areas of
government, science, philosophy and the arts that still influence our lives.
In this course, we’ll be based in Athens to
study the politics and society of Ancient Greece. Athens is the perfect location to study Greece’s ancient
past because it is there we’ll find the Parthenon on the Acropolis and the new,
world-famous Acropolis museum, the Ancient Agora where Socrates taught, and Keramikos,
the ancient cemetery where Pericles gave his Funeral Oration. Athens has great museum collections of ancient cultural
artifacts such as the National Archaeological Museum, the Cycladic Museum, the
Benaki collection, and others. We’ll venture out of the city as well to take a
cruise to nearby islands and a three-day trip to visit the ancient sites of Delphi,
Olympia, Mycenae, and Epidauros.
