The value of a wholly autonomous study abroad program specializing in small group and individualized study is immense. Looking beyond the standard academic model toward a vision of lifelong learning, the Aegean Center does not require outside institutional affiliation. Not being bound by association to the requirements and orthodoxies of larger more generic programs, the Center is free to create courses of exceptional quality and independence. This freedom was indeed one of the founding principles of the Center and remains so to this day. We are free to directly address the strengths and weakness of each and every student, simply because we have the freedom to do so.
Each session is organized around a format of intensive small group and one-to-one instruction with our full-time staff members, visiting lecturers and artists. We also continue to develop our core courses over our 50+ year history. It is from our long and committed experience of specialized teaching in distinctive cultural environments, as well as influence gained from the constant flow of new students that we garner the inspiration and ideas to further develop and improve our courses on an ongoing basis.
