The UW Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies is pleased to announce a special Summer study abroad program hosted by Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece and the American College of Greece.
The program builds on the exceptional work done by UW students in Greece this past summer who studied the plight of the Roma (‘Gypsies’ to many, a pejorative term). The Roma are the most persecuted, discriminated and marginalized ethnic group in Europe, despite being on the continent for over 1,000 years.
The program offers students 15 credits and involves holding discussions and conversations with local officials of the beautiful resort town of Napflion who are making efforts to de-marginalize the Roma community. We will also promote a “legacy project” to further bring positive change into the community.
- The program runs from June 22 to August, 2017 and costs $5,500.
- Costs includes all hotel accommodations (with buffet breakfast), all group travel, several group meals, airport pickups upon arrival, group excursions to Olympia, Mycenae, the islands of Aegina, Hydra and Spetses, the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum, metro passes and group museum visits. It does not include airfare. There are no tuition charges for study abroad programs.
- Open to all UW students, no special language or other requirements necessary.
