Explore the cradle of western civilization through travel, digs, and a menu of courses that combines the resources of several departments — from Anthropology, Art, Economics and Geology to History, Literature, Philosophy, Political Science, and Religion. Lycoming offers its students the opportunity to excavate abroad with two college-supported field schools, the Lycoming College Expedition to Idalion, Cyprus and the Tel Gezer (Israel) Excavation and Publication Project. Excavations offer students academic credit and a chance to visit some of history's most amazing spectacles while on faculty-guided study tours. Students are not restricted to Gezer or Idalion; there are many other field school opportunities across the globe which students may participate in, including the local, faculty-run Muncy Canal Project. In addition to the almost limitless excavation possibilities at Lycoming College, students will find that Lycoming is one of only a few schools its size to offer ancient Hebrew, Greek, and Latin for those who plan advanced study.
