Hellenic Education & Research Center (HERC) was established in 2006 and is dedicated to the promotion of Hellenic Studies with an emphasis on the Classics.
Our mission is to foster academic study in Greece. We encourage undergraduate and graduate university students to benefit academically and personally from a semester or a short term study abroad experience with HERC in the birthplace of Classical Civilization. Over 60 colleges and universities have so far been represented by HERC in Greece.
HERC also organizes and facilitates courses in Greece for specific universities and advanced independent academic study. We encourage graduate students and faculty to visit Greece and pursue research in the field of Classics or related subjects.
HERC invites curious and passionate students from all academic disciplines to join us for intellectual growth, travel, and immersion into the warm, hospitable culture of Modern Greece.
