August 14, 2017 Best Experience Ever
I learned how to be independent and become one with the locals, instead of sticking out as tourists. I learned to enjoy the moment, the trip moves fast so you can't be worrying about the past or future. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
This trip was more than worthwhile. Every day spent abroad was an amazing experience that taught me more than just the culture or the class material. I learned a lot about myself during the 6 weeks of this trip and I am so thankful that I was able to have this experience. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I learned a lot from this experience, especially about myself and the way I respond to different circumstances. I realized I am a pretty easy going person and can adapt to things easily. I also learned to to learn more you have to step out of your comfort zone and always enjoy the things around you. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review

Past Review See All Do All
This program gave me more than I could have ever asked for. It allowed me to visit three different countries as well as numerous different cities and places within each country. Not only did we learn every lesson through hands on methods but we also were given days to relax and explore the culture for ourselves. I learned more w... - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I gained a great understanding of European culture around me and a great deal of knowledge about Ancient Western Civilizations where they began. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
The program affected me in many ways, specifically it opened my eyes to a completely new way of thinking and understanding our western civilization, and it gave me unparalleled insight into new cultures (both past and present) that I could never have anticipated. I can honestly say that I wish that we had spent more time with le... - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I could not have asked for a better first experience traveling abroad. Hitting three countries in five weeks was crazy, but incredibly rewarding. I had so many experiences, and would recommend this program in a heartbeat. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I learned so much but many my desire to see more of the world. It was such a great experience being able to see so much in such a short amount of time. Also, I learned how to sleep literally anywhere: moving car, plane, a boat you name it I can fall asleep anywhere now. You really have to be ready to live out of your suitcase th... - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
This trip taught me to be flexible. You never know what is to come when traveling but you must make the best of it. It also taught me that there are other cultures out there in this world, and you must respect those cultures and assimilate into them. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review

I learned how to be independent and take care of myself in a foreign country. I learned the importance of appreciating other cultures and learned the rich history of Europe. I was all worthwhile. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I gained so much insight on the different cultures I was able to immerse myself in. I talked to the locals and got to learn about peoples' personal lifestyles which was really awesome. I learned how to manage my time and I also learned how to go with the flow. When abroad you never know what is going to happen so you just have t... - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review

I had an amazing time traveling all of Europe. The classes were scheduled loosely and were very relevant to the places we visited. I cant imagine a more immersive and satisfying experience for a course. Experiences ranged from learning about the Olympian gods while in Olympia and Delphi to learning about Dante while visiting his... - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review

This program was very unique because of all the different places we went to. It was definitely worthwhile. We saw so much and it is hard to believe it, but the fact is we had the opportunity of a lifetime. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review

About

Humanities I examines the search for moral, social, and political alternatives and meaning in the institutions, culture, and literature of Western Civilization from its beginnings to 1600. The two-unit elective course examines the philosophical and religious traditions of the ancient near east, Greece, and Rome. Together these courses provide a comprehensive glance at the interplay of the two major currents in the evolution of Western Civilization: Greek rationality and religious faith.
A distinguishing feature of this program is that students taking it are not only made intimate with some of the great works of the period, they also have the unique opportunity to be studying at the corresponding location where the era flourished: students are in Crete during the study of ancient civilizations, in Athens for the classical Greek civilization, in Rome for the Greco-Roman era, in Florence for Medieval times and the Renaissance. The program also is uniquely enhanced with side trips to places that have had a pivotal role in the history of Western Civilization, such as Knossos and Mycenae, with visits to some of the most famous museums in the world, including the Vatican Museum and the Uffizi Gallery, and with tours of renowned local sites like the Acropolis of Athens, the Coliseum of Rome, and the Duomo of Florence. The end result can easily become the education experience of a lifetime.
