The Forest

Greece program open house on January 24

The Lake Forest College Greece program offers an in-depth introduction to the ancient cultures in the Aegean world, and their impact on modern Greece. An information session for the Spring 2020 program will be held at noon on Thursday, January 24 in the Center for Chicago Programs and GEO offices. Greek food will be served.

Associate Professor Ben Zeller will lead the Spring 2020 program, which is split between the Lake Forest campus and Greece. This makes an ideal schedule for all students, including those who are winter-sport athletes and wish to finish their season, or for those students that a full semester abroad may not be a fit.

From January – mid-March, students will take one Classical Studies course on campus to prepare them for life in Greece.  Field trips to the Hellenic Museum, Greektown, or the Field Museum will help you connect to the culture and history. 

From mid-March to mid-May, students take three courses:

  • Professor Zeller’s course on Agritourism and Foodways of Greece
  • One course taught at Webster University’s Athens Campus. Subjects may include archaeology, English, religion, politics, business, and communication
  • One Classical Studies course covering the Bronze Age through Byzantine era 

While in Greece, students will have field trips in Athens and beyond to connect to their coursework.

Students pay their regular tuition, prorated campus housing/meals (if living on campus from January – March), certain College fees, and an estimated program fee of $4,300.  All Lake Forest financial aid will apply.
