Virtual Summer Study 2021

Take a course for FREE this summer!
Prepare for a trip to Greece next summer AND earn credits this summer!
The BU Philhellenes have set up a VIRTUAL Summer Study Program that will allow you to do accredited coursework this summer and qualify you for a scholarship of at least $1,000 if you are admitted to next year’s Summer Study in Athens.
The BU Philhellenes are offering a scholarship to any BU student that enrolls in either course covering the ENTIRE COST of tuition. 

Two online courses will be offered through The American College of Greece, Modern Greek Language, Culture, and Literature taught by Kelly Polychroniou, Head of the BU Modern Greek Program, and Ancient Greek History taught by Dr. Brandon Jones. Both courses transfer back to BU, the first as CAS CG101 and the second as CAS CL321.  
Both courses meet June 28th to July 23rd Monday through Friday 10:40-12:40pm.

If you complete one of the Virtual Summer Study courses this summer, you will automatically qualify for a scholarship of at least $1,000 if you are admitted to next year’s Summer Study in Athens.
The registration deadline is Friday, June 11th. 
For more information and to register for one of the courses, please email Kelly Polychroniou (
