Greece: The American College of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece

Overview

In Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece, students can study at The American College of Thessaloniki (ACT), a non-profit, American-style liberal arts college, for a summer, semester, or academic year. In addition to studying Greek language, students may take courses including accounting, anthropology, art history, computer science, economics, English, European studies, finance, history, management, marketing, mathematics, music, philosophy, politics, psychology, and sociology. All courses are taught in English; no prior knowledge of Greek is required. Students will enjoy small classes and an active out-of-class schedule, including many club activities, a cross-cultural orientation program, and excursions to museums and to places like Athens, Vergina-Dion, Meteora, and Mount Athos. Students may also enjoy the benefits of culture and language learning in community service/volunteer or internship opportunities. ACT affords students a wonderful place to learn and explore Greece and its people.
Additional features: 24/7 site director, optional excursions

 
Location

ACT is located in the port city of Thessaloniki in northern Greece. ACT is part of Anatolia College, founded in 1886, and has about five hundred students from over twenty countries studying on a beautiful forty-five-acre campus (including a cafeteria, library, computer lab, and sports facilities) with many buildings overlooking the historic city below.
