The American College of Greece (ACG) is one of the biggest private colleges in Greece and Europe’s oldest American-accredited college. The private college is also known for offering secondary education and its exemplary graduate programs. In addition, ACG is the first foreign-based American institution for higher education to be granted accreditation by the New England Commission of Higher Education in 1981.
ACG is organized into three divisions: secondary education, undergraduate education, and graduate school. Besides the graduate school, it has three undergraduate schools centered on business and economics, liberal arts and sciences, and fine and performing arts, respectively. The college offers 28 major degree programs and more than 1,000 undergraduate courses.
ACG’s most highly regarded courses come from its graduate programs, which include shipping management, tourism management, business administration, marketing, and human resource management. International learners have a lot of options since English is a primary teaching vernacular.
To supplement the education from its courses, ACG regularly holds seminars and has a variety of academic enrichment programs. Graduate students can attend the “Graduate Master Class Series,” a series of lectures conducted by professionals. Likewise, undergraduate students are offered special lectures from industry experts and film screenings. Even members of the faculty have their own academic enrichment programs.
The ACG’s main campus spans 64 hectares and is located in Athens’ Agia Parasevki municipality. It houses numerous student amenities, which include athletic facilities, several theaters, a museum, a Byzantine chapel, various dining places, and a library that carries more than 250,000 volumes. Learners can join the school’s diverse group of student organizations and have a tour of the historic city during their free time.
Established in 1875 by the American missionary group United Church of Christ in Smyrna, ACG was once a primary and secondary school for women. In 1923, the school moved to Athens where it expanded its course offerings. It awarded its first bachelor’s degrees in 1969 and offered its first graduate programs in 2004.
As of 2020, ACG is attended by more than 4,100 undergraduate and graduate students, 1,500 secondary students, and 500 faculty members. The school has partnerships with over 50 universities in the United States, Asia, and Europe and an alumni network of over 59,000. ACG was also an official training center for the 2004 Olympics.
ACG’s notable alumni include Savvas Theodoridis (football player), Maria Solomou (actress), Chrysanthos Panas (businessman), Kostas Martakis (singer), Notis Mitarachi (politician), and Miranda Xafa (economist).
ACG aims to add sustainable value to its student body, the global community, and its heritage through transformative teaching and service. It also intends to become the foremost nonprofit higher education institution in Greece.
