Alternative Athens

Athens-Texas virtual study abroad programme from Alternative Athens

Alternative Athens has partnered with Texas A&M University, on a very innovative project: a virtual study abroad experience between

Athens, Greece & College Station, Texas.  The goal is to immerse Texas college students into Greek culture over a semester long course. Students will view pre-recorded tours and participate in live events and interactions, such as a mythological storytelling walk, a Greek cooking lesson, a graffiti art lesson, and even an Olympic games workout! This is also a research project that compares how people learn about culture through virtual study programs versus traditional travel abroad, so everyone is looking forward to the results of this pioneering adventure!

Athens is transforming. Don't miss a thing with our monthly newsletter.
