Study Abroad

A study abroad program can be an excellent way to enhance and deepen your appreciation of the classical world.    The Department of Classics is committed to encouraging and supporting students who wish to participate in study abroad programs, whether they be sponsored directly by the Department of Classics or other units at the University of Washington or offered through any number of institutions and organizations.  This is merely a partial list of programs in which our students have participated in the past and which we support.  We urge any student -- majors and non-majors alike -- who is interested in these or other programs to consult with the Undergraduate Advisor (Professor Catherine Connors) or some other faculty member to determine which might best suit your particular interests.  Please remember as well that the Department of Classics has substantial financial resources to enable eligible, qualified students to participate in these programs: click HERE for a list of those resources and application procedures, or feel free to contact the Undergraduate Adviser for further information.
