Through the "Illinois in Athens" program, administered by LAS International Programs in cooperation with the Classics Department, Illinois students can spend the Fall, Spring, or the entire academic year in one of the most exciting cities in Europe while earning credit toward their UIUC degree. Students from all UIUC colleges and majors are welcome. The program centers on a humanities and social sciences curriculum and offers a limited number of for-credit internship opportunities. Two recent videos feature recent Illinois in Athens students and instructors.
