Summer Travel & Study Abroad
The classics department has funds available to help undergraduates finance summer research projects, including intensive language study, academic programs in Greece and Italy, or independent travel.
"We encourage students to pursue language study at accredited institutions in the U.S. and abroad over the summer; some fnancial support is available for such study. Many such programs allow you to start at a higher level of language study when you return in the fall. For a list of availalbe programs, see Summer Courses in Classics. Consult the Departmental Representative for recommended courses with a proven track record of success."
All students interested in applying for summer funding, must complete an application via the University's Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE). When you enter the SAFE system, you will need to search opportunities in the department of classics under Summer Study Abroad (also used for summer study programs in the US).
The International Experience
Travel and study in the Mediterranean are an important part of the classical education experience. The department strongly encourages its students to participate in one of the many programs available. Many departmental students spend one term of junior year at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome. The center offers instruction in classical languages, presents lectures on ancient literature and history, and sponsors a series of trips to important museums and archaeological sites. Instruction is in English by American faculty members, and the curriculum is integrated with the Princeton undergraduate program. Equally valuable is the summer program at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens.
