Why choose DEREE – The American College of Greece?
The Office of International Students believes that while there are countless reasons to pursue a study abroad experience, four key benefits are:
- Academic & Intellectual
Students develop skills in problem solving and within a foreign culture gaining foreign language competencies, richer geographical and historical knowledge and exposure to cultural understanding and perspective that build a new narrative of global understanding.
Students develop a global network of new friends, alliances and contacts, will all serve to embolden a new sense of professional confidence, responsibility and taking chances...all skills which will support them throughout their lives.
Students are afforded the chance to explore and appreciate cultures outside their native culture. Gaining an appreciation of a foreign culture often helps students develop newfound sense of confidence, identity, flexibility, creativity and opportunities.
- Global Perspective
Students gain tangible ethnocentric awareness which provide a deeper and more meaningful understanding of cross-cultural sensibilities, sensitivities and perspectives as they develop language skills, explore cultural, scientific and professional differences (and similarities) that make them more diverse and global in their critical thinking.
