American School of Classical Studies at Athens Summer Sessions

The Summer Sessions of the American School of Classical Studies are an intensive introduction to Greece from antiquity through the modern period. The individuals selected for this program are normally graduate and advanced undergraduate students and high school and college teachers with clear evidence of interest in the Classical world as well as academic preparation in this area.

The program emphasizes the topography and monuments of Greece in their historical context, the interpretation of literature and historical writings, and how ancient sources may be used to interpret archaeological discoveries.  Each of the two sessions lasts approximately six weeks. Three weeks are spent in and around Athens, and three visiting the major sites in other areas of Greece.
