For the third year in a row, the Study Abroad Program will offer its popular summer intensive course on ancient Greek culture on the Island of Crete in Greece. Students will visit settlements and learn about the geology and environment. The deadline to apply is Friday, February 15.

The program will run during the month of June and will include visits to various sites in the area. Available courses include “History and Archaeology of the Bronze Age Minoan and Mycenaean Settlements in Crete” and “Cretan Geological and Historical Landscapes.” Professors Marie Marianetti (History) and Yuri Gorokhovich (Earth, Environmental, and Geospatial Sciences) will lead the program.

The total cost of the program (not including CUNY tuition) is $3,300, which will cover accommodations, museum and site visits, transportation in Crete, airfare, and insurance.
