The Classical Civilizations Academic Year in Thessaloniki and Sorrento
The American College of Thessaloniki in Thessaloniki, Greece, and Sant'Anna Institute in Sorrento, Italy, are proud to announce their new partnership in the launching of their joint Classical Civilizations Academic Year.
The program aims to connect students with the foundations of Western civilization, focusing on two areas: Thessaloniki (Greece) and Sorrento (Italy), which are located in the center of the Mediterranean.
During the program, students will have the opportunity to study the languages, art, history, religion, and political systems of these two areas of the ancient world that shaped Western civilization.
Democracy, individualism, monotheism, architectural proportion, musical harmony: all these concepts were first developed by the classical civilizations. Studying the roots of our cultures will allow students to better understand the complexity of our current era and society in the Third Millennium.
The program is specifically designed for students with majors in Classics, Archaeology, Art History, History, and Political Science, but is also open to students from different majors who wish to explore the roots of our culture.
The program includes:
- the Fall Semester in Thessaloniki, Greece
- the Spring Semester in Sorrento, Italy
Students attend five courses during the Spring Semester and five during the Fall Semester for a total of 30 credits (15 + 15). Credits are issued by the American College of Thessaloniki for the courses in Thessaloniki and by Jacksonville University (Florida) – the school of record for Sant’Anna Institute – for the courses in Sorrento.
