Penn State Athens program

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
Penn State's Study Abroad Program in Athens, Greece has been called the "flagship program" among the university's study-abroad opportunities.  Operating since 1989, the Athens Program has sent over 300 students from Penn State and other Big Ten schools to live and learn in Athens and throughout Greece.  Applications for the Spring 2012 program are now being accepted by Penn State's Office of Global Programs.  You can learn more about the program by viewing the 2012 Athens Program website at http://www.athens.psu.edu/2012/.  The Faculty Director of the 2012 program will be Dr. Christopher Johnstone, of the Communication Arts and Sciences department.  Dr. Johnstone previously directed the Athens Program in 1991, 1997, 2002, and 2007.
