Announcing the CYA Hellenic Executive Program

In partnership with the HALC (Hellenic American Leadership Council), College Year in Athens is delighted to announce the launching of the CYA Hellenic Executive Program.

The CYA Hellenic Executive Program is dedicated to bringing CYA’s rigorous academic profile in an online format to all interested and who desire to further their knowledge on all topics associated with Greece, from ancient civilization to modern-day development.


The program will meet once a week, every Saturday at 12 noon EDT, for six consecutive weeks in a synchronous online teaching environment. Seminar begins on 22 May 2021 and ends on 26 June 2021. Participants are given access to material on Moodle and a Zoom Registration Link. After each session, a recording of the seminar will be distributed to participants.


This seminar has no formal education requirements. We recognize that participants come from diverse backgrounds and with varying experience in the subjects they will be taking the Executive Program. A certificate will be issued to those who have attended all six sessions. 


The Emergence of the Modern Greek State, taught by Professor Alexander Kitroeff, follows the evolution of Greece from the eve of the revolution through the consolidation of the modern state in 1862.  It describes and analyzes the major domestic and international political developments as well as the cultural and social progress which transformed Greece from an Ottoman-ruled province into a modern European nation state.
