University Programs

2Living and studying abroad has become an integral part of a college education. An awareness of other cultures, the experience of changing one’s lifestyle by living in a different country, are essential elements for a well- rounded education.
The Centre organizes semester programs in Greece with colleges and universities from the United States and Canada. The programs emphasize courses in classical, Byzantine and modern Greece. The Centre provides Greek language and civilization programs, guest speakers, and contacts with Greece and things Greek. Academic Credit for the programs comes from the host academic institutions.

University programs of shorter duration take place throughout the year, concentrating on Classical Greek Theatre and topics concerning Greece and the Mediterranean area.

Current Universities at the Athens Centre

 

McDaniel College (January 2014)
The program is lead every year by Prof. Thomas Falkner.

‘McDaniel in Greece: Myths, Monks, and Monuments’ offers an intensive introduction to the history and culture of ancient Greece, including the Pre-Historic, Classical, and Byzantine Periods, primarily through its material remains.  Students will study and visit a broad range of significant monuments, museums, and archaeological sites, with special emphasis on the insight they offer into Greek culture.  Particular attention will be given to Greek religious belief and practices and how they are related to the material remains.

In addition to extensive travel in Athens, students will travel to Aegina, Corinth, Crete, Delphi, Eleusis, Epidaurus, Mycenae, Nauplion, Olympia, and Sounion.
