Immerse Yourself in International and Intercultural Affairs

You will be part of an international research semester in Greece immersing yourself in Greek culture, history, and contemporary issues as you study in Thessaloniki, Greece with AU and our partner, the American College of Thessaloniki (ACT). Mentorship in Greece students will be part of a living-learning community of AU students in Thessaloniki, Greece. If you select this program, you will gain international experience in the fall semester and join AU in the spring semester with a global perspective.

Advance Your Academics

From day one, you will build the foundation for the AU degree program that you will begin in the spring semester, because your Mentorship Program in Greece classes focus on skills that will advance your academics at AU.

You will develop close relationships with other students and faculty and be part of classes where professors serve as mentors, working with you one-on-one and in small groups. You will be enrolled in a combination of AU and ACT classes - taking classes as a cohort on ACT's campus, while having full access to ACT campus activities and services.

Beyond the classroom, an AU professor and advisor will guide your international research experience - using Greece as a classroom with excursions to the Royal Tombs, Athens and Delphi.
