A student studying abroad with College Year in Athens: Summer Programs in Athens
A new understanding of the world and a new love for Classics. The people I met, food I ate, and memories I made opened my eyes and humbled me in a way that staying in Austin could not have.

September 28, 2015 Summer Of A Lifetime!

About

Students interested in short term, intensive study abroad are invited to take advantage of College Year in Athens' summer courses, which offer unique, experience-based opportunities for learning.

Summer is an exceptional time to study in Greece. Our unique courses are tailored to combine academics with authentic experiences, taking advantage of the sun, the sea and the vibrant summer culture from Athens to the surrounding islands. Explore our country's rich history, get involved in archaeological excavations and delve into the anthropology of food in Greece, and so much more, this summer at CYA.

Our summer courses are offered in two consecutive 4-week sessions that run between the end of May and the end of July, as well as a special 4-week philosophy seminar that overlaps both sessions. They are arranged so that motivated students may earn credit in complementary courses. Students take one course per session. Each 4 week course/session consists of 60 contact hours.

Program fees include tuition, lodging in a furnished student apartment or hotel unit, course materials, a farewell lunch or dinner and, where applicable, field trips and co-curricular activities. Cost varies by course. See the full list of courses below or visit http://www.cyathens.org/43/1/summer_courses/ for more information!
