Seminar-based Programs

Every year, CHS Greece organizes and/or co-organizes with other Harvard units two very successful seminar-based programs in Greece. Harvard Summer School's Summer Program in Greece is one of the oldest and most successful study abroad programs of the University, running continuously since 2002, whereas the highly innovative High School Summer Program, started in 2012 and since 2017 is co-organized with Harvard’s Committee on Degrees in Social Studies, and supported by the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies, Harvard University, since 2019.

As of 2023, CHS Greece will support yet another seminar-based program in Greece, the Summer Course on Migration and Refugee Studies, a joint initiative of the François-Xavier Bagnoud (FXB) Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University and the Refugee and Migration Studies Hub at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA). The interdisciplinary course was established in 2022 with the aim of engaging participants both conceptually and in practice with crucial issues related to contemporary forced migration. A front-line migration country, Greece provides an essential location for studying this topic's theoretical and practical aspects. As Harvard's local-global office, CHS Greece has supported the newly launched course, which connects the two institutions from US and Greece, since its first cycle.
