The Summer Abroad programs are designed to enrich students’ academic lives by providing an exciting and educational international experience. Students complete full-year University of Toronto undergraduate degree credit courses from the Faculty of Arts & Science that are relevant to each location. Relatively small classes (about 25 students on average) are taught by University of Toronto professors or faculty from the host university. All classes, with the exception of language courses, are taught in English.
Earn a full-year POL credit in Greece this summer!
This will be the first year that the University of Toronto has offered a summer course in Greece. Students will earn a full-year Political Science credit in five weeks while living and learning in Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city. This course will benefit students interested in immersing themselves in Greek history and culture. The program will be organized and hosted by the American College of Thessaloniki (ACT), an institution with a long and prestigious history that dates back to 1886. Students will be housed close to the campus with easy access to the classroom and will have full use of the stunning ACT campus’ facilities and services.
Field trips, which are designed to complement the focus on events since the 1820s, include a two-night visit to Athens/Delphi and overnight excursions to Thassos or Samothraki, Ioannina/Meteora, Philippi/Kavala and Pozar/Edessa.
