The Cyprus/Greece/Turkey summer study abroad program is geared toward all ASU students who wish to investigate conflict resolution in the Eastern Mediterranean, from different perspectives. The five week program will spend the first week (01-05 June) on the ASU Tempe campus, and last week (28 June –02 July) online. The second week will be in Greece, the third week in Turkey and the fourth week in Cyprus (June 6-27).
