Faculty-led Program in Greece (May)
Greece is a major force in the world economy and international relations. Through first-hand experiences of the Greek culture, this educational travel course provides students with opportunities to enhance their knowledge and capability of working in a culture different from their own. Having practical experience in a culture and society with profound historical roots provides insights for adapting to various cultures. Developing an understanding of that culture as well as the skills for working with international citizens in a wide range of situations provides UNI students an advantage when seeking career opportunities.
While abroad, students will visit start-up companies and established industries, explore ancient archeological sites, and enjoy the natural beauty of the Greek islands.
This program was so much fun. We got to explore so many different towns and cities together! I also learned a lot from the class, some skills and information I will use for the rest of my life. Highly recommend doing this program; you won't regret it! - 2023 participant
Best experience of my life. I learned so many things, saw a different part of the world, and even learned so much just being in Europe. I loved how everything was well planned out and organized. - 2023 participant
