Boost your resume with experience working and studying in Athens

Earlham students enrolled in the Athens Internship Program are provided the opportunity to gain skills and work experience while abroad. You’ll spend six hours a week in your placement and enjoy seminar sessions designed to give time to discuss and reflect on your experience and how to adapt that experience in the future. You’ll also create a term project and spend time getting to know this magnetic country, its people, and its unrivaled culture and heritage.

Greece and Athens are not what you expect. Friendly and a little intimidating; a mixture of noisy chaos and calm quiet. Small, familiar, welcoming neighborhoods and traffic-rich downtown avenues. Peaceful coastline and a thriving nightlife; street markets and couture. Chaos and coffee.
