Loyola University Chicago

Study Abroad



Faculty-Led Summer Program

Program Description

This course is an introduction to the art and archaeology of the ancient Greeks from the Bronze Age (c. 3000 BCE) to the Hellenistic period (first century BCE). It focuses specifically on major developments in ancient Greek architecture, sculpture, pottery and painting. Students will learn what is actually to be seen, comprehended and appreciated by studying art in Greek museums and archaeological sites. They will study the “texts” of individual pieces, while maintaining a sense and grasp of overall form and composition, as well as how individual examples figure in trends, evolutions, and otherwise in their contexts. Students will thus come to understand how the parts and the whole work together to comprise art.
