Greece: Ethics and Culture
Summer 2019 Program
Dr. Chris Panza & Blaine Whisenhunt
Students will begin their Greek study-abroad experience in the city of Athens. There, we will investigate world-famous museums as well as travel to the open-air historical sites such as the Acropolis (the Parthenon) and the Agora. We will then depart for Aegina, where we will spend the majority of our time studying and investigating the island’s various historical and cultural sites as well as enjoying the many attractions that the main town's marina port life have to offer. From Aegina we take a high-speed ferry to the island of Crete, far out in the Aegean Sea. Once there, we will immerse ourselves in the heart of the ancient Minoan civilization, visiting the historical museum in Chania, taking a day trip to the famous biosphere reserve at Samaria Gorge, and visiting Heraklion to visit the famous (ancient) Minoan Knossos. After returning to Aegina, we end our trip with a brief day trip to Hydra Island, a favorite of artists, to experience a place where no cars or motorized vehicles are allowed.
