Urban Planning
CYA will add a new academic discipline in Urban Planning & Sustainability in spring semester 2015 with 3 core courses that focus on major projects currently transforming Athens.
Lots of Travel Opportunities
Study travel has always been integral to the CYA program. Here fall semester students hike through the Samaria Gorge, a world biosphere reserve, during the field trip to Crete.
If you're a classics major
On-site teaching is a hallmark of the CYA study abroad program. Here A361 The Archaeology of Athens class meets inside the Parthenon with Dr. John Karavas.
BFFL
A special bond and lifelong friendships are formed among CYAers during their semester or year in Athens. The OWL Newsletter and reunions help former classmates keep in touch.
Levels of Civilization
Exploring the many levels of Greek civilization from prehistory to modern. CYA field trips provide a holistic experience of Greece - its environment, history and culture throughout the ages.
Hands-On Learning
Wherever possible CYA offers students direct contact with the material. Here students are excavating at Aixonides Halai with a 2-week program before the start of the spring semester .
