Program Description

Global Temple Conference

Temple Summer in Greece: The Global Good Program's four-week undergraduate seminars offer students the opportunity to complete Intellectual Heritage II: The Common Good, in one of Europe's oldest capitals and cultural hubs. These courses pair small seminars, in which students read and discuss works of enduring philosophical, literary, and social value, with frequent field trips to sites of ancient and modern cultural significance in and around Athens.  The program opens with an orientation session, and all courses are taught by Temple faculty from the U.S. campus with expertise in European culture, history, and literature.

You'll enjoy the the Arcadia University's Athens Center's central location, in Pl. Varnava, which is within walking distance of Syntagma (Constitution) Square, a bustling commercial area and the governmental core of Athens. Moreover, when you need to undertake research, you'll appreciate the Center's close proximity to the National Library, the American School of Classical Studies, and the British School of Archaeology.
