Optional Study Trips

Boost Your Knowledge & Experiences

The three day Optional Study Trips combine academics, history, contemporary culture and personal exploration. Led by experienced faculty, the trips provide an opportunity to experience significant aspects of Greek and Mediterranean history and culture.

Each semester we plan three optional trips. Details are sent to all accepted students before the semester begins and are posted on the website.

Applications & Fees


The cost of Optional Study Trips is not covered by the tuition but is kept low so that most students find them very affordable. The trips usually take place over a 3-day weekend. Accepted students will find detailed information about the trips and how to apply early by logging in and going to Optional Trips on My Semester Checklist.
