As the birthplace of the Olympics, philosophy, democracy and more, Athens is the cradle of Western culture and society. The UW Classics in Greece program is your chance to explore how ancient civilization has shaped the world today. Experience thousands of years of history as you live and learn in the cultural, industrial and political center of modern Greece.

You’ll spend three weeks with a group of UW-Madison students, led by UW-Madison Professor Marc Kleijwegt. The program includes time in Athens as well as the cities of Thessaloniki, Glyfada and Nafplio. Study the literature, monuments and artifacts of classical Athens while taking a walk through history with other UW-Madison students!
