Society and Politics in Ancient Greece

            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.
