Lehman’s Study Abroad Program Goes to Crete this Summer

March 26, 2012 2:12 pm Study Abroad

Lehman students will have an opportunity again this summer to study Ancient Greek culture on the island of Crete through Lehman’s Study Abroad Program. The program will run from June 1-30. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 30.

Led by Professors Marie Marianetti (History) and Yuri Gorokhovich (Earth, Environmental, and Geospatial Sciences), students will begin their journey in the capital and largest city, Heraklion, where they will visit sites such as the ruins of the Palace of Knossos. Students will stay in the villages of Palaikastro and Matala, visiting some of the world’s oldest ruins. Most lectures will be held on-site, as field trips are scheduled for most days of the program.

The courses offered include “History and Archaeology of the Bronze Age Minoan and Mycenaean Settlements in Crete” and “Cretan Geological and Historical Landscapes.”

The total cost of the program (not including CUNY tuition) is $3,000, which will cover accommodations, museum and site visits, transportation in Crete, airfare, and an ArcGIS software hardware key.
