CYA has offered study abroad programs in a wide range of academic disciplines for over 50 years. With supplemental activities varying from archaeological digs to onsite courses, study-travel, and volunteer opportunities, students are able to actively engage with their course material. Students live in apartments in downtown Athens and will be inspired to immerse themselves in the environment and expand their worldview. As a European capital, Athens is both rich in history and a contemporary hub for art, international business and relations, and debate on economic, political, and migration issues.
The CYA curriculum comprises a diverse set of courses taught by expert faculty. There is a strong emphasis on both contemporary and ancient studies, focusing on European and East Mediterranean Area Studies. Classroom lectures are complemented by onsite courses and field trips to major historic and contemporary sites near Athens and study-travel to various parts of Greece and Europe.
