The Greece 2020 travel study trip provides a three-week field-trip to Greece, which combines the study of central aspects of Greek antiquity with an experience of modern Hellenic society.

We visit both well known sites—such as, the Acropolis of Athens, the Stadium of Olympia, and the Oracle of Delphi—and a selection of important, but less-frequented sites (including some not yet open to the public). All of our classes will be held on-site, as we focus on Roman remains across southern Greece, and the art and architecture associated with Greek religious life.

Program fee: $4,125. Financial support through bursaries and travel awards is available to current students embarking on travel study. Contact classics@unb.ca for more information.
