For many majors in Classics, travel, study, and excavation abroad have been an integral part of their University experience. With advance preparation and careful financial planning, several majors each year are able to live, study, travel, or excavate in Italy, Greece, or other countries in Europe or the Near East. The Department enthusiastically endorses such travel and readily offers advice on available programs. Students who participate in such programs describe their experiences in glowing terms, both for the educational advantages they offer and the personal growth they afford. Several kinds of study abroad are available through UMass Classics and through the University. Course credits transfer and count toward UMass graduation.

Among the study abroad programs highly recommended by the Department are the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome (The CENTRO), College Year in Athens ( and Study in Greece via Ohio University ( The department also sponsors an inter-term (January) three-credit course in Rome specially geared for majors and minors.

For advice on any of the above programs, or for information on summer programs and excavations, please see your advisor or contact Professor Elizabeth Keitel at 413-545-5777 (Centro Program), Professor Debbie Felton at 413-545-5780 or Professor Rex Wallace at 413-545-5779.
