Required Courses

The Greek Key: Experiencing Athens as a Cultural Landscape course has two components:

1. Modern Greek Language: The first component is Modern Greek language, in which students are placed at the appropriate level of proficiency. No prior knowledge of Modern Greek is necessary.

Please indicate your proficiency level in Modern Greek when completing your course form. A placement interview may be conducted after arrival. If you have never had any Greek language instruction, please indicate this on your form.

2. Greek Key Seminar: The second component is a cultural seminar which involves a structured service learning activity in a social service or environmentally focused organization accompanied by small group interaction. Fieldbook exercises will help document your insights into the society and people of contemporary Greece.


Making Sure Your Credits Will Transfer Back

It is your responsibility to make sure that you are registered for a full academic load according to your home school and that the courses you take abroad will transfer for credit to your home school. While every effort will be made to accommodate your course selections, Arcadia University does not guarantee placement in any course.
