Semester in the Mediterranean

The Semester in the Mediterranean is a program based on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus that combines a traditional immersion study abroad experience with educational travel to Greece, Italy and Spain, with a co-curricular focus on Mediterranean cultures. 

Students will experience Athens, Rome, Pisa, Florence, Venice and Barcelona on the travel component of this program. The travel component does not impact the classroom schedule and is combined with co-curricular material relating to Mediterranean culture.
