Program Overview

Program Description:
Perrotis College is the higher education division of the American Farm School. We offer degree programs specializing in agriculture, business, management, tourism, landscaping, livestock science and food science. Our academic programs are all taught in English and our student body is 50% Greek and 50% international. Besides agriculture related internships, SSIP participants in the past have done projects in finance, marketing and organizational behaviour. Both undergraduates and graduates have participated in the program. The paid internships are awarded on a competitive basis each term. A limited amount of financial aid through the College is also available.

Paid and unpaid work and research internships are offered during spring and fall semester and during the six-week summer program through our Semester/Summer Internship Program (SSIP). Interns live on campus with the international student body of the College, and work 30 - 40 hours per week in one of the departments of the American Farm School's model farm, which includes a new educational dairy (which produces what is considered the best milk in Greece), a poultry unit, greenhouses and field crops, olive groves, a vineyard and a winery. Under special arrangements, interns can also work in other departments of the American Farm School. University credit is also available for the internship, for an extra fee. Interns also have the option of going on a sailing trip (before the program starts), participating in other organized excursions (climbing Mt. Olympus, visiting Athens, etc.), doing a homestay and taking courses for credit, such as the Greek Cultural Experience, Introduction to the EU, Agrotourism Principles and Practices, Marketing Management, Precision Agriculture and more, depending on student interest.

SSIP Fees: $5250 per semester, $2470 for summer (amounts in US dollars). Fees cover: on-campus room & board, refundable dorm deposit, administration fees, orientation and health insurance. NOT included are: transportation to Thessaloniki/Greece, individual travel & excursions, off-campus meals, personal expenses and pocket money. Optional items such as sailing trip, homestays, internship credit and extra classes, are offered at an additional cost. Please consult Perrotis College's website for further details.
Setting Description:
Interns live in the international residence hall, on the beautiful campus of the American Farm School, located about 20 minutes (by bus) east of the Thessaloniki city center. Thessaloniki, Greece's second largest city, is a lively and multicultural administrative and commercial center, with an intellectual and artistic character all of its own. Its bustling commercial harbor has become a lifeline for the Balkan region, while visitors are drawn to the nearby archaeological and religious sites, as well as the beaches and turquoise waters of adjacent Halkidiki.
