UGA CLASSICS Study Abroad Programs
The Department of Classics has educated students abroad since 1970. Programs led and taught by Classics faculty take students of all UGA colleges and major programs to Rome and throughout Italy and Europe to explore Classical antiquity and its reception. These enriching programs offer great opportunities to add a Classics Major or Classical Culture Minor and to gain valuable career-building skills.
UGA Classics in Rome offers students 9 hours of undergraduate course credit during the summer and UGA Classics Europe: Unearthing the Past offers 6 hours of undergraduate course credit in Maymester with itineraries throughout Europe. Courses taught on both programs satisfy the UGA Experiential Learning Requirement and GENED/Franklin College Requirements.
The Department of Classics belongs to the Intercollegiate Center of Classical Studies in Rome (ICCS), the American Academy in Rome (AAR), the American School of Classical Studies in Athens (ASCSA), and College Year in Athens (CYA), all of which offer study abroad opportunities for students of Classics. Consult the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) for opportunities in archaeological site excavations.
