Admission is competitive; admissions are rolling and ongoing, and space is limited! Interested students should contact the 2019 Program Director, Dr. Bryan Crable, as soon as possible.

This five-week, 6-credit summer program is specifically designed to give Communication students important insights into the origin of the discipline and its relevance to contemporary public discourse. The program travels throughout Greece as it focuses on the history of the spoken word–and its relation to epic storytelling, oratory, drama, and the life of the polis. The program, run annually since 2001, welcomes students who are majoring & minoring in Communication and closely related fields, such as English, Classics, Humanities, Honors, etc.

This year’s program consists of two team-taught courses, one focusing on ancient Greek rhetoric and democracy, and the other on the rhetorical function of myth. The courses take place on ancient archaeological sites and on hotel grounds (including, often, the beach). The size of the program is also ideal, since two faculty members are accompanied by 20-22 students, from universities across the country. This creates a unique learning environment, one that fosters a close intellectual and personal bond between students and faculty.
