Honors Program in Greece
Students participating in this program will be enrolled in a 3 Credit Course (HONR 3087) during the Fall semester.
Course Level: Freshman-Senior HONR 3087
This class will provide students with the opportunity to be immersed in the Greek culture through weekly courses and a Winter Break Trip. Throughout the course students will research Greece’s economical, political, and social environment in preparation for a 10-day experience in these countries. Students will also participate in lectures and other cultural training prior to going abroad.
Immediately after finals, the class will travel to Greece for on-site tours of ancient locations and guided experiences by an Ancient Greek historian. Some of the cities students will visit are: Athens, Delphi, Meteora, Thessoloniki and Crete. The class will also have the opportunity to have dinner in a Greek village with a local family while abroad. Students will be responsible for keeping a journal, capturing audio, video, and still photographs of locations and experiences around the county. From this students will create a project with the assistance of the instructor to be featured by The Honors College at Auburn University.
*Additional costs incurred for the trip to Greece is the responsibility of the student. Approximate cost is $3400 which includes: lodging, some meals (9 breakfasts, 3 lunches, 6 dinners), domestic flights, motorcoach transportation, and admission fees to sights and museums.

Greece is located in southeastern Europe, on the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula; it lies at the meeting point of three continents – Europe, Asia and Africa. Greece borders Bulgaria and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia Albania, and Turkey; to the West it experiences the waters of the Ionian Sea; to the South the Mediterranean Sea and to the East the Aegean Sea. Within the Greek civilization culture and art are two concepts closely linked, art is considered the distinctive expression of the culture of any given period. Participants in this program will be able to trace Greek history from the Paleolithic Era to the Roman Period through the many archaeological sites, a variety of art, as well as in the archaeological museums that we will experience.
