Program OverviewGreece

Join Dr. Chelsea Brislin in a two-week program in and around Greece to learn about culture, history, tourism and effective communication methods. Students on this program will be expected to compare and contrast communication styles and strategies between the larger city of Athens, the much smaller town of Nafplion, and the islands of Syros, Tinos and Santorini.

Students will also learn about a variety of business models and best practices for professional communication in a foreign setting, reflect on strategies for building and achieving effective communication strategies across cultural barriers, and recognize and articulate the value of global relationships and connections.
