Why study history abroad?
The benefits of studying and understanding history are not always obvious. How, for example, can knowing the intimate details of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh help you find a job today? Sometimes it may seem like there is little to relate to, but understanding history helps us to appreciate humanities past triumphs, as well as our mistakes. From this knowledge we seek to build a better future.
One of the many perks of studying abroad is the chance to live and learn in any one of the great cities of the world. Did you know people have been living in Athens, Greece for over 3000 years?! There's definitely a lot to learn there about the origins of ancient Greece and how it's people forged the modern ideal of a republican government.
