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 level university students and continuing education students to benefit academically and personally from a semester or a short term study abroad experience in the birthplace of Classical Civilization. Over 50 Colleges and Universities have so far been represented by HERC in Greece.
HERC also promotes and facilitates more advanced academic study. We encourage graduate students and faculty to visit Greece and pursue research oriented work in the field of the classics or related subjects.
We seek to increase the awareness and understanding of Greek History and Culture by organizing and participating in academic/educational programs, seminars, conferences, lectures, documentary films, and publications.
