The Department of Classical and Near Eastern Studies strongly encourages students in its programs to consider the value of studying abroad. Studying in the actual territories of ancient Mediterranean civilization gives students access to the ancient world in a way nothing else can, through firsthand experience of ancient monuments, topography, archaeological sites, and museums. Moreover, the study of classical languages and cultures developed and remains strong in Europe, where students have many opportunities for academic work.
