Hellenic Education & Research Center (HERC) was established in 2006 and is dedicated to the promotion of Hellenic Studies with an emphasis on the Classics.
HERC organizes and facilitates faculty-led study abroad programs in Greece and encourages advanced independent academic study. Learn more about our programs and services or download our brochure.
Our mission is to foster academic study in Greece. We encourage undergraduate and graduate students to benefit academically and personally from a study abroad experience with HERC in Greece. HERC has worked so far with over 120 colleges and universities.
We invite enthusiastic students from all academic disciplines to join us for intellectual growth, travel, and immersion into the warm, hospitable culture of Modern Greece.
“HERC inspired me to keep looking for opportunities for meaningful travel experiences, which are not just about visiting a place but becoming part of it.” – Gabrielle Vidella, University of Arizona
