The joint Bucknell/Penn State Athens semester study-abroad program consists of an annual spring program, open to qualified juniors and seniors. Second semester sophomores may also apply with special permission from the appropriate Dean. The program is led by either a Bucknell or Penn State faculty member.
Students will be enrolled in four courses for a total of four Bucknell University credits. All courses receive Bucknell University grades. The core focus of the program is Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies and also includes courses in the social sciences and humanities. All courses are designed to take full advantage of the program location in beautiful Greece, offering numerous day and overnight field trips to sites around Greece, such as Crete, Sparta, Delphi, Olympia, and of course, Athens. Students are housed in flats in central Athens.
