Tentative Syllabus, Tentative Schedule


This travel-study program will explore the Bronze Age societies that occupied Crete, the Peloponnese and the Greek mainland. These societies fall under the modern names of the Minoans (after, Minos, the legendary King of Knossos) and Mycenaeans (after the site located approximately 15 km from the Bay of Argos between Mt. Ayios Ilias and Mt. Zara). The excursion will combine visits to archaeological sites and museums with readings from primary and secondary sources about the societies and their influence on subsequent cultures.


The Center for Hellenic Studies will accept applications on a rolling basis. Enrollment will be limited to 20 participants.

The application will call for a PDF of your transcript and contact information for 2 references. The Center will contact your references and have them fill out an online questionnaire.
