Topics to Explore
In Greece, you might choose to explore some of the following topics:
Whether you are a student of politics, science, theater, literature, architecture, or philosophy, your studies were born here—a period of history unlike any before or since. Travel programs can take a broad look at the remarkable progress of the era or delve into a topic of interest related to a more specific curriculum. (Many groups also choose to visit Italy for a full look at the two great civilizations of the era.)
Our study of mythology today is largely due to the art and literature in which the ancient Greek citizens celebrated their idols. See these works firsthand and explore how the gods were worshipped by believers. Explore the evolution of myth’s role in society, from pre-Christianity theology to a kind of folklore that existed alongside monotheistic religious practice.
Explore the real-time questions relevant to Greece’s very difficult road through debt crisis and its current relationship with its trading partners in Europe. Though this developed economy was strong for decades, some economists have now reclassified it as an emerging market again. Study its effort to recover, especially in contrast to neighbors Italy or Spain with a “compare and contrast” itinerary.
