Greece is the cradle of much of western culture and society; from philosophy to the Olympics, the UW Classics in Greece program is your chance to see where it all began!  Experience thousands of years of history as you live in the cultural, industrial and political center of modern Greece.  Study the literature, society, monuments, artifacts, and culture of classical Athens while also exploring the life of modern Greeks. 

You’ll spend three weeks with a group of UW-Madison students, led by UW-Madison Professor Marc Kleijwegt.  Professor Kleijwegt will provide a unique insight into classical Greece.  The program itinerary includes both time in Athens as well as time exploring the Greek countryside.  You'll spend time in Athens as well as the cities of Thessaloniki, Glyfada, and and Nafplio.  Don’t miss this exciting chance to take a walk through history with other Madison students!
