Short Term & Faculty Led Study Abroad Programs

At Webster Athens, we pride ourselves on offering Short Term and Faculty Led Study Abroad programs that provide students and professors an unforgettable experience in Greece. 

With the network of resources, we have built we work creatively in designing affordable programs that will meet the academic and cultural needs of your institution.   Not only do we provide full logistic support for your group but through our passion for what we do, we constantly seek to inspire students in exploring Greece beyond the classroom.

We believe that shorter, more-focused programs will make it more accessible to students who may otherwise miss out on an international experience due to academic, financial or other obligations. Students with little or no overseas travel experience may also find this model more attractive, feeling more comfortable traveling within a structured program.

Professors will also have a lot to gain from the experience of teaching in a country of special interest such as Greece.  By leading a program abroad professors will have the opportunity to engage in multiple cultural activities and develop a valuable network of ties abroad.
