Program Overview

Program Description:

The aim of the course is to introduce Athens’s arts and architecture from antiquity to modern times. The first week is devoted to arts and the second to architecture. In addition to regular (formal) 39 hours of lectures the course includes visits to most important sites of ancient and modern Athens and its surrounding islands (Hydra, Poros, Aegina) and archaeological sites (Acropolis, Parthenon, Delphi, Mycaenus, Epidaurus). Guest speakers and two roundtable discussions on the future of teachings and researching arts and architecture in a global world with invited speakers from different countries and different continents are also an addition to this course of study. 

All participants will receive a certificate of attendance and a transcript to validate their course at their University. Grades are given only to participants who fulfill all the requirements of attendance and course evaluation. Participants who simply attend (audit) the course are given only a certificate of attendance signed by the President of the Institute and the two course leaders.

The course runs for two weeks in June. Visit for more information.
