Passport to Global Citizenship Program:
Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini, Greece
This is a non-credit cultural enrichment program.
There are no scholarships available for this non-credit program.
The Passport to Global Citizenship program offers CCSU students the opportunity to participate in a non-credit international experience. The program is designed to introduce students to various international cultures, advancing international competency. The program reinforces the University's commitment to international education by providing all students with the opportunity to have an enriching international experience. The destination of this program is Greece.
This program will begin and end in Athens, the birthplace of modern democracy. There in the Greek capital city, students will visit historic institutions including Constitution Square, the House of Parliament, the Memorial to the Unknown Soldier, and the National Library, as well as historic landmarks including the Acropolis, Hadrian’s Arch, the Temple of Zeus, and the Panathenaic Stadium where the first Olympic Games of the modern era were held in 1896.
The group will then set sail for the mountainous island Mykonos, where mythology’s Hercules defeated and killed the giants. Participants will marvel at the windmills and Cycladic architecture this granite island is known for. Visits to smaller islands off the coast of Mykonos are planned, as are opportunities to swim in the local hot springs and relax or pursue individual activities. On day six of this journey, participants will take an express ferry to the Island of Santorini, known as the “Black Peal of the Aegean” and considered by some to be the site of the legendary lost continent of Atlantis. A balanced mix of scheduled activities and free time to pursue individual interests makes this program perfect for students, faculty, staff, and members of CCSU’s extended community.
