International Field Study in Greece
Greece Application (PDF) - Please fill out and return to Engleman Hall 220.

This field study in Greece will provide students international experiences in the area of mathematics, mathematics education, and STEM-related activities in historic and breathtaking regions of Greece. Students will visit university, elementary, and high school classes to attend lectures and observe the culture of education in Greece. They will participate in STEM activities at the Patras' Science Center – an interactive STEM center. Students will also visit the island of Samos, home of the University of the Aegean (housing the School of Sciences, with departments of Math, Information and Communication Systems Engineering, and Statistics and Actuarial Science) and the birthplace of Pythagoras, where they will attend lectures on Pythagoras and his discoveries, such as the Pythagorean theorem. One last experience will be the visit to Cape Sounion in Athens, the most southern point of the main land.

At each locale, the students will be guided on the culture and history of Greece, highlighting the impact to philosophy, art and architecture, sciences, and mathematics over the centuries.
