Undergraduates are strongly encouraged to further their studies abroad. The Education Abroad Office offers study, research, internship, and service learning opportunities for all students, from faculty-led trips to semester-long exchange programs in the summer, winter, or fall.
Fund your abroad experience
Going abroad is an important experience, and there are a number of scholarships available to help you. Here are two scholarships of note:
- The department annually awards one student the Clarence Forbes Scholarship, which is designed to subsidize summer travel to the Mediterranean region.
- The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship is open to students who receive Federal Pell Grant funding.
Find your next adventure
The department will usually offer at least one faculty-led Education Abroad program each year, and often more. Recent trips have taken students to Italy, Greece, Ireland, and Japan. Students are introduced to the archaeology and art of the culture by trips to sites and museums. Faculty frequently offer archaeological study tours to Greece, Italy, Turkey and Egypt during the summers.
These programs include:
- The American School of Classical Studies at Athens
- College Year in Athens
- The Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome
- Hebrew Union College in Jerusalem
