23 JUNE – 29 JULY 2018
If you are planning to pursue academic study abroad this summer, we invite you to consider the Harvard Summer Program in Greece.
The program, now in its seventeenth year, is the oldest continuously running and one of the most successful Harvard study-abroad programs. The five-week course (23 June – 29 July 2018) is divided between the seaside town of Nafplio, and the historical city of Thessaloniki. Greece is an ideal place for summer study: traces of ancient history and culture are found everywhere, and the country has been an important meeting point between East and West across the centuries. The beautiful climate and landscape are additional sources of inspiration.
The course carries 8 credits that in the past have included – but are not restricted to – classics, literature, and history. The course also counts towards Harvard General Education credit. In the past, participants have been recent high school graduates, undergraduates, graduate students, or independent scholars. Please note: Students must be at least 18 years old and in good academic standing to apply.
Applications are due January 25, 2018.
Students will be notified of admission decisions by mid February.
