Study in Athens and receive your Associate or Bachelor degree directly from Hellenic American University (Nashua, New Hampshire, USA). Programs include Business Administration, Informatics, Engineering, Psychology, English Language and Literature, and Music.
Undergraduate students can study on a full- or part-time basis. Full-time students can ordinarily complete their undergraduate studies in four years. Part-time students should expect their path to degree completion to be extended, depending on the number of courses they take each term. (The University operates on a semester system, with a Fall and a Spring semester, each fifteen weeks long, and two summer sessions.)
All undergraduates complete a course of study totaling at least 120 credits, of which 40 credits are in General Education.
The General Education Core
General Education provides a liberal arts and science education for all students regardless of their major. Designed to foster well-educated critical thinkers and global citizens, the program foresees required and elective courses in writing, mathematics, science, foreign languages, arts and humanities, and the social sciences. Through these courses, students enhance their self-awareness, academic and problem-solving skills, civic awareness and intercultural knowledge.
Please see the Hellenic American University website for more information on the General Education program.
The Politis Program of Civic Engagement
The Politis Program is a required General Education component that aims to foster civic engagement. It combines service-learning opportunities, volunteer work, and other forms of co-curricular community involvement to expose students to community problems, and help them develop social, civic, and cultural responsibility. Undergraduate students complete 90 hours of service-learning activities and community volunteer work prior to their graduation. Students meet the requirement by participating in three kinds of activities: personal development events and activities, action service, and course work.
