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.  Included in the program is a four day trip to the Peloponnese region of southern Greece, where you'll visit the towns of Nafplion and Olympia.  Don’t miss this exciting chance to take a walk through history with other Madison students!
