Study in Greece 

 

 
The Art Department in conjunction with the History Department at Providence College offered an amazing opportunity to study in Greece. The three credit course, The Rise of Greek Civilization was a survey of Greek history taught through the unique combination of archaeology, architecture, history and religion. Art History professor and archaeology specialist, Dr. Thomas Strasser took students to specific, historical archaeological sites in order to learn about Greek culture. Dr. Fred Drogula, professor of Ancient History lectured students at these various sites to further understand Greece's rich history. The course was offered as a Maymester Program and began with a week of rigorous classes on campus at Providence College from May 19th through the 23rd, 2014. The course was then followed by a twelve day trip to Greece where students were able to work and study on site with the professors.

Global Learning Service Trip 

 
 
Eric Sung, Professor of Photography, led an interdisciplinary program entitled, "Visualizing Peace and Justice," which involved a two-week January intersession trip to Ecuador followed by a Spring-semester course that he co-taught with Professor Jeff Pugh in Political Science. The purpose of the program was to explore how art and photography are used to bring about social change, engage in political activism, and create spaces for reconciliation after conflict.
