All TnCIS programs are academic in nature and course work that takes advantage of the program location will be the central focus. Programs offered by TnCIS through any member institution are in keeping with SACSCOC policies for each respective institution where compliance is monitored at the institutional level. TnCIS program courses are for credit only.
In Greece, students will enroll in ONE course. For more information about each of these courses, including pre-requisites and syllabi, use the button provided below.
Greece’s famously warm hospitality is warmer than ever. Tourists are welcome, the Greek people are congenial and friendly, and we can enjoy a gorgeous country and incredible food as we experience the rich historical, literary, cultural, social, and artistic contributions of Greece. Much of Greece's history relates back to the primary thinkers and artists of ancient Western civilization when so many works of philosophy, the arts, and even history reflected the same principles. The courses offered in Greece will build on the country’s rich history and cultural traditions while program excursions will enhance and show the intersections of topics studied in each course.
Excursions May Include
There will be multiple excursions in and around the Tolon and Athens vicinities. Excursions may include visits to Mycenae, Olympia, Corinth, Delphi, Patras, the temple of Poseidon, the Acropolis, the National Archaeological Museum, and the Ancient Agora.
Please note: Prospective students should be aware that study abroad programs require a great deal of walking. You should be prepared to walk several miles each day, and you should bring shoes appropriate for comfortable walking. You may also walk over steep, uneven, possibly slippery or rocky terrain even in cities. Flip-flops are not recommended for such walking, although they can come in handy while in the seashore village of Tolon. You will need to take appropriate precautions with sun exposure and drink plenty of water; consider bringing a water bottle.
Classes will be held three hours per day during the week and occasionally on weekends. Remember that flexibility is key.
