Summer Abroad: Greece: Athens

This will be the fifth year that the University of Toronto has offered a summer course in Greece and the second year a course is offered in Athens. Students will earn a full-year Political Science credit in four weeks while living and learning in Athens, Greece’s capital and largest city.

This course aims to provide students with a deep understanding of contemporary Greece and will benefit students interested in learning about the continuing Greek contributions to world civilization. Aspects of the Hellenic culture, people, language, food, and traditions will be examined. The course is taught in English and there are no Greek language requirements.

The program is organized and hosted by the College Year in Athens (CYA), a non-profit educational institution established in 1962. CYA emphasizes the importance of learning beyond the classroom to gain a deeper understanding of Greece. Students will be housed close to campus with easy access to the classroom and on-campus facilities and services.
