"In the footsteps of Paul the Apostle" focuses on this pivotal figure in early Christianity, whose teachings and writings form one of the cornerstones of Western Civilization. The program consists of two three-credit undergraduate courses, supplemented by study trips. During the time in Thessaloniki students will visit Pauline sites such as Philippi, Neapolis, the Lydia baptistry, Veria, Athens and Corinth. Readings and guest lecturers are paired with walking tours of Thessaloniki and field trips with emphasis on the chronology of Paul's life and teachings make this a unique course to gain insight into the teachings of Paul and the modern impact of his life.
Students who take this course may opt to combine with one of several companion courses in Greek language, history, philosophy, a one credit museum course or a short-term intensive internship when available.
