Student Testimonials

"The ever-encouraging and supportive professors of the Classics Department facilitated opportunities I would never have dreamed of before beginning my bachelor’s degree. I learned the joy of traveling and the basics of archaeological field work through a study abroad experience in Turkey. I learned the fundamentals of artifact research and exhibition preparation through a museum internship at the Anderson Gallery. I was even given the freedom to develop my leadership skills through the Undergraduate Classics Club." – Catherine Nicastro, BA '09

Study Abroad with Classics

Summer: The Art and Archaeology of Greece

Modern Greece traces its roots to the civilization of Ancient Greece, considered the cradle of all Western civilization. On this spectacular 23-day trip, we will travel around much of mainland Greece and the Peloponnesus, including Athens, Eleusis, Delphi, Meteora and Thessaloniki, and also visit three great islands: Santorini, Crete and Skopelos.

Summer: The Monteverdi Archaeological Field School in Italy

The Monteverdi Archaeological Field School takes place in the heart of Tuscany (Italy) in the Commune of Civitella Paganico. The field school excavations focus on a late Etruscan-Republican sanctuary and related vicus as well as on a deserted medieval village, along the middle valley of the river Ombrone.

Winter: UB Classics in the Mediterranean

UB Classics in the Mediterranean is designed to provide a vivid introduction to the art and archaeology of the ancient Greco-Roman world, while savoring the cultural attractions and achievements of all of the important eras of later Roman and Italian history, from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance to the Fascist era to today.
