Hellenic American University was established as a United States institution of higher education on May 11, 2004, through passage of an Act of the General Court of the State of New Hampshire and the signature of the Governor.

In less than a decade’s time, the University has received its Charter in the United States; established and strengthened academic programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels; attracted a first-rate faculty and visiting scholars of international renown; sought and received State approval for University programs through the New Hampshire Postsecondary Education Commission; secured candidacy for accreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges; and awarded degrees to our inaugural classes of graduate students.

Applications for all Hellenic American University programs can be submitted at any time during the year and are processed in the order received. Academic terms run for 12 weeks and normally begin in late September, January and April of each year.

The Hellenic Experience

Hellenic American University offers a Study Abroad program, the Hellenic Experience, which is focused on broadening the students’ understanding of other cultures in an English-speaking environment located in an International setting. Hellenic American University offers a journey through the Hellenic Civilization by “walking” from the past to the present.

The journey begins in Athens, the cosmopolitan and historic capital of Greece which inspires the imagination as no other city in the world. Our studies begin here in the very place where Plato taught and the foundations of democracy were established.

Why Study in Athens Greece?

Greece is a reference point for inspiration for world travelers and intellectuals. Characterized by its rich history and stunning scenery, Greece today is still the reason people leave their homes to seek the deeper meaning of life. Students come with expectations of good food, lots of sun and endless seas and leave with a broader knowledge of the world, with memories and experiences which lead to redefining their life goals.
