Study Abroad With Classics


Study Abroad Opportunities

One of the most rewarding experiences in the field of Classics is the opportunity to travel to the Mediterranean and study the languages, literatures, and cultures of Ancient Greece, Rome, and the Near East abroad! Undergraduate and Graduate students are strongly encouraged to seek out study abroad opportunities in language, literature, and culture courses, as well as archaeological digs, during the fall, spring and summer terms. TTU Classics has two opportunities in development in the Aegean and on Sicily.

Our program in Sicily is scheduled to begin in Summer 2020. For more details, click here.

There are also other study abroad opportunities provided through Texas Tech University.

In addition, we encourage students to explore the many other options available, such as:

Please contact the Classics Undergraduate Advisor, Dr. Pamela Zinn, for information and assistance concerning course credit for non-TTU study abroad programs.
