Academic field trips are an essential part of the CYA curriculum. They give you the chance to experience first-hand, historically and culturally important sites and regions of Greece and bring you into closer contact with its people and landscape. Each semester there are 3 field trips (a total of 12 days).
Each field trip is designed to supplement the academic program and includes a pre-departure lecture which covers the historical background and the current importance of the regions and sites to be visited. In addition, a full description of each trip with learning objectives and a bibliography will be provided to help you prepare for a more meaningful travel experience. Upon return, wrap-up sessions are conducted to help consolidate what you have learned.
Participation in academic field trips is required as they supplement the academic program and involve coursework. The trips will give you a chance to boost your knowledge by exploring major sites relevant to ancient, medieval or modern Greek history.
