The UGA at Oxford Study Abroad Program has been in existence for over twenty years and is a big reason that the University of Georgia has risen to rank in the top five in the nation for University student participation in study abroad programs. It offers over 90 different courses in a wide variety of majors and subjects, so we are certain to have something for everyone, including students of Classics.

Christina Westpheling graduated from UGA in 2011 with an A.B. in Classical Culture and Art/Art History. She has since started working at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. She stays busy but had a chance to describe her life after college and how she has been using the Classics.


While many students get the opportunity to study abroad, few have had the opportunity to get as totally immersed as Chad Wisinger, a senior double majoring in Classics and Religious Studies at UGA, and currently studying at Heidelberg University in Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. He wants to go on to eventually teach and write on theology. He's had a truly unique experience so far and was nice enough to spend part of his evening (our early afternoon) sharing what it's like to study Classics so far from home.

Scientists and art historians may seem like an odd pairing.


But put them together in a room with a 2,000-year-old Roman sculpture, some scientific equipment and the goal of figuring how it originally looked, and camaraderie abounds.  

It's another new year, and we're already in full swing with classes and activities that include our Archaeological Institute of America lectures, Graduate Student Classics Colloquia, visiting lecturers, Reacting to the Past, and more! We would like to take a moment to thank all of you who make it possible for our students to grow and explore the world of Classics through your generous gifts to our various scholarship and assistantship funds.
