Education Abroad

For more than 25 years, Prof. Michael Toumazou has directed an archaeological excavation at Athienou-Malloura on the island of Cyprus. More than 75 Davidson students have earned a course credit through his summer field school. In addition to the Malloura project, there are other great opportunities for students to study abroad in Greece and Italy.

Education Abroad Programs

If you're hoping to spend a summer, semester, or year abroad studying classics, we recommended these programs.


The American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA), the center of American research in Greece, offers a six-week summer session. They provide an unparalleled opportunity to experience the ancient sites, monuments, and culture of Greece first-hand, under the guidance of expert professors deeply familiar with the country and up-to-date with the latest research. Prof. Jeanne Neumann and Prof. Peter Krentz are both summer session veterans; Prof. Krentz has taught one as well.

The College Year in Athens, incorporated in 1962, offers summer as well as semester and year-long programs with credit through Southwestern University. For more information, see Prof. Keyne Cheshire.


The American Academy in Rome, the leading American research institution in Italy, offers a six-week summer program. Davidson is one of the member institutions. For more information, see Prof. Jeanne Neumann, a veteran of this program too, or Prof. Gregory Snyder, our representative on the managing committee.

Situated in a lovely part of Rome on the Gianiculum Hill, the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome is the foremost classics program in Italy. Students take a two-credit course on Rome that includes excursions in the city and throughout Italy. They study Greek, Latin, or both, and art history or Italian. Davidson is one of the institutional members. Prof. Keyne Cheshire attended ICCS as an undergraduate, and Prof. Jeanne Neumann is our representative on the managing committee.
