The Department of Classics offers a traveling program, taught by a member of the Department and devoted to the study of classical antiquity. The group spends the entire spring semester visiting selected archaeological sites and museums in Greece, Turkey, and Italy. Group travel is the rule, but spring vacation provides an opportunity for independent travel in the Mediterranean region. The program terminates in Europe, so participants who wish may travel further on their own. Selected students for this program must also participate in a full day/evening team building exercise on a TBA Saturday in the fall (probably early November).
The program comprises the following four courses:
1. CLA 253 GREEK AND ROMAN HISTORY
2. CLA 254 GREEK AND ROMAN LITERATURE
3. CLA 257 GREEK AND ROMAN ART AND ARCHITECTURE (ART 232)
4. CLA 258 GREEK AND ROMAN ARCHAEOLOGY
• CLA 257 fulfills the core requirement in fine arts
• CLA 254 fulfills the core requirement in literature
• CLA 253 fulfills the core requirement in history
Housing and Meals
Participants will stay in hotels thoughout the semester. Accommodations vary and might be in doubles, triples or (occasionally) quads. It depends on the gender balance. Breakfasts are generally, but not always, included. Some meals are included in the program fee. Students will be responsible for additional meals.
Students with sophomore, junior, or senior status may apply. Classics majors are not necessarily given preference in the selection process. We can take a maximum of 16 students.
This Program is ONLY open to Davidson Students.
The criteria for selection are:
(1) demonstrated seriousness of academic purpose,
(2) diversity of interests, and
(3) social traits likely to help make a delightfully memorable experience out of seventeen strenuous weeks of living in intimate contact with sixteen other individuals in an academically and physically rigorous program that is constantly on the move.

Davidson College reserves the right to cancel or modify part or all of a study abroad program should changing circumstances make it necessary to do so. In cases where the college has security concerns, the program director and the Dean Rusk Program Director will gather information and make a recommendation to the Dean of Faculty. The dean will take his decision to the president, who retains ultimate authority to decide whether or not a particular Davidson-sponsored trip should proceed.
Davidson admits qualified students without discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, age, handicap, gender, or sexual preference.
