American School of Classical Studies

USD is a corporate member of The American School of Classical Studies at Athens, which provides our students opportunities for summer study in Greece. Two sessions, directed by the School's Gertrude Smith professors, are conducted annually. These sessions are designed for students who wish to complement their training in the language and literature of ancient Greece with an introduction to the country and its monuments. Housing and meals for participants are provided by the school. Enrollment in each session is limited to 20 students. Students interested in this program should consult with Professor Clayton Lehmann.

Student History Conference

Each spring the department hosts the Phi Alpha Theta regional Student History Conference, where students from area colleges and universities present and critique papers as at a professional history conference. For more information on the Student History Conference, contact Professor Clayton Lehmann.
