This program will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and experience the full mosaic of Greek culture. Become an active participant in the Greek community and learn about this complex country through experience - from its prominent international position at the forefront of global issues such as migration and economic change, to its rich cultural and historic contributions to society.
Experience life as a Greek - new perspectives, cultural insight, community life, the realities of migration, local and global economic debate and of course, survival Greek language. You’ll enjoy mixing academic learning with experiential learning in the streets and neighborhoods of Athens. You are free to choose your four additional courses from our varied liberal arts offerings such as art history, modern political economy, journalism, literature and history. Students interested in Classics often pursue the archaeology, philosophy, and Ancient Greek course options.
We also offer many local volunteering and service learning opportunities if you'd like to get practically involved with the local community. For an internship option, check out the Athens Internship Program.
Spend two days engaging in practical applications of course material through study outside of Athens for each class.
All courses, with the exception of the Greek language courses, are taught in English.
You may also choose to complete an independent study project in place of one elective. This may be in a STEM field such as forensic anthropology and soil science, or in the humanities or social sciences. Note: GPA for consideration if taking a STEM project elective is 2.5.
