The American College of Greece is located in Athens, Greece. Greece as a country and Athens as its capital have been celebrated throughout recorded history. Continuously inhabited for over 5,000 years, today Athens is home to 3.5 million people. A modern metropolis, as well as the birthplace of Western civilization, it provides an unparalleled setting for educational opportunity and exploration.
DEREE - The American College of Greece is proud of its global outlook and reach. Everything on its beautiful campus has an international flavor: the American model of education applied in an international setting; the language of instruction (English); the curriculum, which is designed with global realities in mind; faculty with advanced degrees from universities around the globe; partnerships with more than 50 universities in the US, Europe and Asia and with international companies offering students world class workplace experiences; over 35,000 alumni in almost every country on the planet, and, of course, the student body.
About 350 students from more than 50 countries study at ACG each academic year, taking advantage of the College’s location in the epicenter of one of the world’s most historic and beautiful lands, and the global recognition of its degrees.
Athens is a unique setting for an American college abroad, affording a backdrop for academic investigation like no other. Here the liberal arts were born, thinkers grappled with the practical and the existential, and for the first time ordinary citizens earned the right to elect their representatives.
Whether you are drawn to exploring the Acropolis or enjoying a leisurely frappe in a cafe at the Agora, Athens offers something for everyone. The majestic columns of the Acropolis stand guard over a culture that vibrates with the pulse of the 21st century. Conformity is challenged daily, just as it was 2,500 years ago when democracy and philosophy, sculpture and architecture, theater and historiography flourished here.
