NYU in Athens is a six-week summer program in Athens, designed for both undergraduate and graduate students from all U.S. Universities. Students can take up to 8 transferable credits and fully immerse in the culture, society, and history of Greece and the Mediterranean. NYU in Athens offers Modern Greek language courses at all levels, as well as courses on archaeology, history, literature and photography.
Students participate in site visits that include but are not limited to archaeological sites and museums, as well as cultural activities such as concerts, plays and dance performances. Participants also go on weekend program trips to islands such as Crete and Santorini.
The past few years, NYU in Athens has also designed a special program that addresses all aspects of the European debt crisis, including the cultural, social, political, economic and historical effects of the crisis on Greece and Southern Europe. This part of the program offers specialized courses, guest speakers, program seminars, and site visits, and will encourage students to actively experience and expand on the current situation in Greece through original projects that range from personal blogs to creative group initiatives.
