Why Study Abroad?

Students in Classics are encouraged to study abroad for a semester or year in one of the many programs available. Nothing really prepares you for your first glimpse of the Parthenon after walking up the Acropolis in Athens, for seeing the Roman forum amidst the umbrella pines, or for becoming acquainted with the countless artifacts and sites known to us otherwise through books and images. Because of this, a semester or year abroad will immeasurably enhance your Classical education, and expose you to ancient and modern cultures, different approaches to Classics, and various fields of specialization in a way otherwise impossible (not to mention polishing your academic resume, should you be considering graduate school).
