Travel Study 2024


Exploring Italy + Greece:

May 2024

Join professors and students from Western Carolina on a travel-study adventure to two beautiful European countries shaped by their proximity to the Mediterranean: Italy and Greece.

 We’ll spend multiple nights in each locale, immersing ourselves in rich design and architecture that spans thousands of years, from the Parthenon of Ancient Greece to the modern heartbeat of Rome, juxtaposed against the ancient world.
