The Department of History leads the following study abroad opportunity at USF. 

USF Athens - History and Culture

The program consists of an immersive experience in history, archaeology and culture and ancient Greece based on one intensive week of field studies in Athens, one preparatory week before the program and one assessment week after. The program includes visits to cultural landmarks of Greece's capital, such as the Acropolis and the Agora, and to some of the most important archaeological museums of the world as the National Archaeological Museum, the Acropolis Archaeological Museum, and the Museum of Cycladic Art. Broader cultural experiences, such as a Syrtaki dance and Greek food workshop will make the program even more meaningful for students. Major sites for Aegean prehistory and Greek Archaeology and History, such as Mycenae, Tyrins, Epidauros, and Thorikos also will be visited. The Athens Program Leader is Dr. Denise Cali.


The program consists of an immersive experience in ancient Greek and Roman history and archaeology based on one intensive week of field studies in Sicily, one preparatory week before the program and one assessment week after. Sicily, recently featured in the White Lotus HBO series, is the largest Mediterranean island. It is an important part of Italy, just off the "toe" of the "boot." Its rich history and culture are palpable. On Sicily’s eastern edge is Mount Etna, one of Europe’s highest active volcano. The program will include the visit of the Greek theater, the amphitheater and the Roman baths of Catania; the Hellenistic theater, the Odeon, and the “Naumachia” of Taormina; the archeological park of Neapolis of Siracusa; the Roman villa del Casale at Piazza Armerina; the archeological site of Morgantina; the Greek temples and the archaeological museum of Agrigento.
