The Program in the Archaeology, History, and Literature of Ancient Greece   offers a wide-ranging degree devoted to Classical Greek culture. Students have the opportunity to study the archaeological monuments and the history of Greece. They familiarize themselves with the ancient Greek language through the systematic examination of important ancient texts. The curriculum includes a number of classes in Modern Greek. The interdisciplinary nature of the program allows students to think both critically and imaginatively, write well-structured essays, as well as interpret complex sets of data.

On-site instruction

All archaeology classes include field trips to archaeological sites and museums within Athens and its environs; in addition, students are expected to participate in a series of longer field trips around Greece, including the Peloponnese, Central Greece and Macedonia, as well as the islands of Santorini, Naxos, and Crete. Students are also welcome to attend, on a voluntary basis and subject to their academic schedule, the Departmental Archaeological Excavation in Marathon or the Excavation at the site of Trapeza (Neon Rysion - Kardia) undertaken by the International Hellenic University.
