Program Overview

Program Description:
Perrotis College Study Abroad enables undergraduate or gap year students to explore Greek culture while taking classes, engaging in service learning activities or completing an internship. On weekends and breaks, students are encouraged to explore the many faces of Greece-by living with Greek families on homestays, participating in the program's organized trips and excursions (including Athens and Mt. Olympus), or venturing out on their own to nearby places of interest. Program options include: degree program (3-4 years), academic year, semester (fall & spring), and summer. Setting Description: Students 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.
