Archaeology and History in Egypt, NYU’s semester abroad program, is introducing a Fall as well as a Spring Semester in 2011-12. We are looking for student participants who are interested in archaeology, ancient history, the classical world, Egyptology, and a unique educational experience in the Middle East. If you know undergraduates who might be interested, we would appreciate your help in alerting them to the existence of this program in time for them to gather more information and make the deadline on May 30th. This is a relatively small program, taking a maximum of 12 students each semester. It incorporates seminars, visits to a great many archaeological sites, and active participation in an excavation project. Although a majority of the participants come from NYU, Columbia, and Barnard, we have always taken students from institutions around the country and remain committed to doing so. Our website, with full information on the program and a detailed schedule of the 2011 and 2012 semesters, is http://www.amheida.org/. NYU EGYPT ARCHAEOLOGY
