Through a new study-abroad program titled “Ancient Perspectives, Modern Eyes,” honors students can now travel to Greece for the summer in the University of Iowa’s first opportunity of this kind.

Based in Athens, Greece, the new UI honors study-abroad program allows students to travel to various ancient sites in Greece. The first trip will take place from early to mid-June in summer 2020, and students in attendance are required to take an honors course in which they gain knowledge to prepare them for the trip.

Limited to 25 students, the estimated costs for each individual on the trip is between $7,000 and $8,000 to cover all fees and purchases.
