Larissa, Meteora, Makrinitsa, Athens - Greece; London - England
Experience Greek society and culture while attending informational seminars in the seaside communities of Volos and Athens, two of the 2004 Summer Olympic cities. Participate in social service activities to observe practices addressing societal issues.
While in Volos, explore such places as the traditional villages of the Pelion mountain region of Thessaly, the majestic rock formations with ancient monasteries and ancient ruins at Meteora, the Athanassakeion Archaeological Museum of Volos and perhaps one of the outlying islands.
After departing Volos, travel to Athens and tour the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the Akropolis with its Parthenon, the Plaka area, the Benakion Museum of Greek Civilization, the Greek National Historical Museum, and the Athens 2004 Olympic village building. These communities reflect urban, rural and diverse environments and offer unique opportunities for professional and personal growth.
Studying abroad will help anyone to expand their knowledge and give them experiences a classroom setting or textbook will never provide. Being a part of an entirely new cultural setting is exciting. Education abroad introduces you to a new culture, a new way of life. I am very thankful I was given this opportunity in my life!
Note: Individuals student teaching in the spring semester may still participate. Participants must work out the details in advance with the faculty leader in order to ensure that there aren't any conflicts with student teaching or with the clinical requirement in special education.
