Study Abroad in Athens - Greece


The Stetson University School of Business Administration is excited to host a Study Abroad trip to Athens, Greece.  We are partnering with the Hellenic American University to host us in Athens.  The Hellenic American University operates two campuses; one in Nashua, New Hampshire and one in Athens, Greece and is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). The Athens Campus is located in walking distance from the Acropolis, the Parliament, ancient Greek and Roman agoras, and the first modern Olympic stadium. Greece, the birthplace of democracy and cradle of Western civilization, offers extraordinary opportunities for a rich learning experience. Yet, Athens is also a vibrant modern metropolis that remains affordable, safe, and friendly.

The trip is scheduled for Spring Break 2024 and is open to all Stetson students.  All students who attend will receive a cultural credit and an experiential learning credit.  This trip is also being taught in conjunction with International Business and Culture (INTL 201).  However, you do not need to be enrolled in this class to participate in the trip.  Those who are enrolled in INTL 201 (in the Spring) will receive adjusted course requirements.
