Program Description:


Arcadia Center for Hellenic, Balkan, and Mediterranean Studies in Athens, Greece


Greece flag

Through an exchange with the Center for Education Abroad at Arcadia University, Hollins students of classical studies and related fields can study Greek language, history, and culture for one term at the Arcadia Center for Hellenic, Balkan, and Mediterranean Studies and Research in Athens. The program is open to juniors, and second-semester sophomores, with juniors receiving priority.


Students on this program take modern Greek language and a course called "Greek Key: Cultural Landscape," an interdisciplinary seminar designed to involve students in Greek community life. In this course, field research techniques are used to examine and begin to understand the complexities of contemporary Greek society. Part of the coursework may involve structured service learning activities in a social service or environmentally-focused organization.

Three electives are chosen from among archaeology, ancient Greek and Latin, Greek literature, art, history and philosophy, Byzantine studies and modern Greek studies. Many courses include field excursions to sites of historical and cultural importance, trips and guest lectures. Courses are open to program participants only.

Housing and Meals

Students at the Arcadia Center live in apartments with other program participants. Each apartment has two or three double bedrooms and shared living room, kitchen, and bath. The apartments are within easy walking distance of classes. Hollins provides a stipend to cover the cost of meals .

Applicants are evaluated on their academic and personal maturity, flexibility, and openness to new cultural experiences. Hollins recommends approved candidates to the program, which makes final admissions decisions.
