The Department of Classical Studies is very proud to host the Boston University Phihellenes Project (BUPh), which fosters an appreciation for Greek language and culture in various ways, including an annual Summer Study in Athens. We are also happy to have a close, working relationship with the American College of Greece, the home of our annual Summer Study.
Each year, Boston University faculty members lead a group of students in courses on the beautiful campus of the American College of Greece, located in the Agia Paraskevi region of Athens near the northern edge of ancient Mount Hymettos. Students live in the apartment-style residences on campus and enjoy amenities that include marble bathrooms and floors, ample balconies, an Olympic swimming pool, a fitness center, and complimentary laundry facilities.
The BUPh Summer Study is an academic program, featuring courses led by BU and ACG faculty that carry transfer credit at Boston University. Students from Boston University’s Core Curriculum and students interested in classical studies are especially encouraged to apply, but the program is open to all students. Through course work and through excursions to sites like Delphi, Epidauros, Mycenae, and Naufplion, and islands like Aegina, Ydra, and Poros, the Summer Study seeks to introduce students to Greece’s rich historical heritage as well as to the vibrant world of contemporary Greek culture. Students return to the United States with an appreciation of Greece’s past, present, and future.
