College Year in Athens
The College Year in Athens program provides university-level courses focused on Greece and the Mediterranean region. At the same time, it specializes in creating a caring learning environment that imparts knowledge by first-hand experience, immediate observation, perception, and enjoyment. CYA offers courses in a variety of disciplines, designed to help you achieve your academic goals. You will be able to devise a program of studies that helps you gain both a deeper understanding of this part of the world through the ages, and a new perspective on the global environment.

In view of the fast and often dramatic developments in the world, there is yet another reason—and a very important one—for a college student to spend a semester or a year in Greece at College Year in Athens: living and studying abroad provide growing and maturing experiences to young people, similar to rites of initiation. Seeing the world and the U.S. from the perspective of a geographically small European country located at the meeting point of West and East, with thousands of years of continuous history, is an educational experience of great importance.
