Each summer New York University undergraduates join the international team of experts committed to the excavation of Yeronisos, as well as the conservation, study and publication of its finds. As participants in the Yeronisos Island Field School, the undergraduates received course credit and experience in every aspect of archaeological fieldwork, including stratigraphic excavation, surveying, recording, conservation, drawing, photography, and publication. They have the benefit of learning from the American, French, Belgian, British, Dutch, Greek and Cypriot professionals who serve as our dig architects, conservators, numismatists, epigraphists, floral, faunal and bone experts. Some undergraduates have recieved Explorers Club Youth Activity Awards to support their participation in the Field School.

The Yeronisos Island Excavation Field School, now in its fifth year, offers New York University undergraduate course credit (4 points) for a seven week program of work in the excavation and survey of Yeronisos as well as in the conservation, study and publication of its finds.
