Study Art Abroad in Greece from September 11 to 22, 2019
Craving adventure? Looking for some upper-division Art History credits? Why not do both at the same time! Professors Avitts and Lewis will be taking a group of CWU students to Greece to encounter firsthand the very beginnings of Western civilization. There are still a few slots left.
Study Art Abroad in Greece from September 11 to 22, 2019
From pre-Bronze Age sites like Mycenae, to the palace of Knossos on Crete- legendary home of King Minos and the Minotaur- to Athens- the cradle of both democracy and Western art- to Delphi, once home of the famous Oracle- this trip will familiarize you with both the sweep of history and the major artistic developments up to and including the Roman era.
 
Interspersed with visits to archeological sites and museums, students will also have plenty of opportunity to immerse themselves in modern Greece; sampling Greek food, visiting markets, experiencing the night ferry to and from Crete and observing how a modern culture coexists with the legacy and remnants of the past.
 
Students will take a two credit academic class during the Spring 2019 quarter and then will travel to Greece from September 11 to 22 (just before the start of the Fall 2019 quarter) for another two credits.
 
The four-credit experience will fulfill one of the upper-division Art History requirements in the Art BA and BFA degrees.
 
Financial Aid can generally be used to help fund study abroad experiences. The cost of the program includes: round-trip airfare, transport to/from hotel and all major sites, hotel accommodation with breakfast, overnight ferry with sleeping cabin to/from Crete, all required museum and site admissions and one farewell dinner.
 
There are still a few slots left. We can discuss tuition and fees in more detail with any students who show an interest in the program. - please contact Professor Keith Lewis at lewisk@cwu.edu or Dr. Ellen Avitts at avittse@cwu.edu .
PLEASE CONTACT US BY DECEMBER 30th SO THAT WE CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH DETAILS AND APPLICATION MATERIALS. APPLICATIONS WILL BE DUE EARLY WINTER QUARTER. Professor Keith Lewis at lewisk@cwu.edu or Dr. Ellen Avitts at avittse@cwu.edu .
