Now in its 6th year, Rutgers Summer Program in Greece taking applications for 2010

From Gary Farney, Associate Professor of History at Rutgers—Newark, and Director of the Rutgers Summer Program in Greece:

“Rutgers University is running its Summer Program to Greece again this coming Summer 2010 for the sixth consecutive time (from ca. July 6 to August 10). In this undergraduate program we travel around Greece, spending about half the time in Athens itself and half in the rest of Greece (in three discrete trips, to Crete, the Peloponnese and northern Greece). Students earn 6 credits, 3 in history and 3 in classics. While in Athens we stay in and use facilities provided by College Year in Athens, and outside of Athens we stay in hotels and overnight ferries, traveling around by bus. You can download the full program description here.”

“An estimate of the costs this coming year is a bit more than $5500 for New Jersey residents and $6500 for out-of-state residents (this figure does not include food costs in Greece or airfare to and from Greece). The program was rated as one of the most affordable by Let’s Go Greece on a Budget 2008.”

“For more information and an application, students can go to the program’s website, or they can contact me, Gary Farney, the Director of the program, directly via email.”
