STUDY
When you choose to study at Webster Athens, you are choosing to study in the birthplace of Western Civilization. Our Odyssey in Athens program combines traditional study abroad with many opportunities for experiential learning. Students can choose to take courses from the Global Citizenship Program (GCP), Webster’s globally- focused general education program or choose from a diverse variety of upper-level courses; many of which have an international or cross-cultural focus. Though not required, many students take advantage of the Greek language and culture courses (see reverse side).

LIVE
Recently renovated, Webster Athens features modern classrooms and administrative offices located at the base of the Acropolis. All students reside in furnished apartments in the Plaka district – right next to campus. The narrow, picturesque streets of Plaka are full of cafés, restaurants, shops and artisan galleries. Athens is an ancient, yet modern city and many of its cultural activities are within walking distance from the campus and student housing.
