Special Opportunities


Students have the opportunity to study at one of the world’s premier study abroad programs, College Year in Athens (CYA).

Academic Program

College Year in Athens offers a broad range of courses, spanning the disciplines of history, art & archaeology, political science, Latin and Greek, philosophy, anthropology & sociology, business, religion, political science, and environmental studies. CYA fully integrates the environment of Greece with the academic program. Some courses have as a required component field trips, site visits, and museum sessions. Modern Greek is taught on a formal basis, and students are urged strongly to take this course.

CYA has a very distinguished faculty, numbering over twenty. They are scholars with international professional reputations who choose to teach at the undergraduate level. Therefore, students have the opportunity to study with some of the world’s foremost scholars.

While CYA has an obvious appeal to Classics majors, its broad range of course offerings makes it an attractive program for students with any major. Since courses are taught in English, it is one of the few programs in a non-English speaking country that does not require a working knowledge of the local language.
