Center for International Education


Aegean Art & Culture

Nazareth College is partnering with SUNY Brockport and the Athens Center to offer a summer study abroad program in Greece! 

Join us for almost two weeks and learn how the cultivation, trade and ritual celebration of foods played a major role in the development of Greek culture and the artwork of their ancient civilization and-- just as important, how these foodstuffs and expressive arts inform cultural practices in Greece today!

From museum and archaeological site visits in Athens, to interactions with food producers, market vendors and chefs; to biological tours and field trips to seaside and mountain villages on the beautiful Greek island of Kea, the Peloponnese Peninsula, and Mani, you will learn about Greek art and experience how the Mediterranean diet (derived from wild and cultivated sources like olives, olive oil, wine, honey, grains, legumes, nuts, seafood and meats) is not just a way of eating---but a lifestyle rooted in biodiversity, sustainable community-based food production and long-standing cultural traditions of art, music, and dance!
