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 study abroad experience with HERC in the birthplace of Classical Civilization. HERC has worked so far with over 60 colleges and universities.
HERC organizes and facilitates faculty led study abroad programs in Greece for specific universities. It also encourages advanced independent academic study.
HERC has developed programs focusing on the interdisciplinary approach of History, Archaeology and Theater, concluding with student performances in established Greek festivals and venues.
We invite passionate students from all academic disciplines to join us for intellectual growth, travel, and immersion into the warm, hospitable culture of Modern Greece.
