Program Description

The University of Delaware World Scholars Program is a four-year program for internationalizing a student's undergraduate career. Choosing from a wide range of majors, World Scholars are supported in their studies with internationally-focused academics, experiences, and opportunities that will prepare them to live and work anywhere in the world. UD World Scholars study abroad twice, beginning with the first semester of their first year in Greece, Italy, Spain or New Zealand, and in any of 40+ destinations during their junior year.

Scholars heading to Greece will spend their freshman fall at our partner institution, the American College of Greece (ACG) - Athens. Founded in 1875, The American College of Greece is the oldest American-accredited college in Europe and the largest private college in Greece. Located in the Athens metropolitan neighborhood of Aghia Paraskevi, World Scholars will spend their first semester on this 64-acre campus overlooking the capitol city. Make your home in the place where modern education, democracy, and Western civilization began. Walk in the steps of ancient philosphers and travel to sites that you may have only seen in books or movies. Accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education, ACG boasts top faculty and scholars from across the globe and a student body representing 58 countries.

ACG on-campus facilities and resources include a simulated trading room, fully online library, computer labs, both a black box theatre and outdoor amphitheatre, as well as an Olympic-sized swimming pool and indoor athletic arena. Their status as a full-fledged secondary educational institution means that ACG offers the services and amenities to support a successful launch to a student's college career, including academic advising, counseling, career services, health services, a writing center, and more. In addition, World Scholars in Athens will benefit from opportunities to participate in student clubs, music, theatre, intramural sports, and Intercollegiate athletics such as basketball, futsal, rugby, soccer, swimming, tennis, volleyball, and water polo.

ACG courses are taught in English except for foreign language courses. World Scholars will co-enroll in Introduction to Global Politics, and may then choose additional options from a menu of recommended courses. Some of the courses include out-of-class experiences around Athens to take advantage of the city’s historic and artistic resources, which may require an additional fee.

UD World Scholars will live in a residence hall and will benefit from a dining plan that includes on-campus meals, provisions to prepare their own meals, and gift certificates for off-campus dining. Scholars will reside alongside resident assistants in apartment-style housing with full kitchen and shared laundry, fitness, and lounge areas just a short walk from campus.

The Program Fee includes housing, dining, international insurance, select excursions and activities abroad, as well as resources to support student success provided by UD and our partner institutions, including full access to all ACG facilities and activities. It does not include the cost of a Greek visa and required FBI background check.

NOTE: The program fee does NOT include airfare. The program officially begins when students arrive in Athens. For planning purposes only, airfare is estimated at $1,400. Students who wish to travel with the UD representative, must book the recommended flights as outlined in your /mybluehenhome portal.

ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Before making the decision to study abroad, prospective students with disabilities should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some study abroad locations may differ from the United States. Review these questions with World Scholar Program leadership to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
Program Courses
All courses are taught in English and meet UD graduation requirements.

Scholars will co-enroll in POSC 240 Introduction to Global Politics and will select four additional courses. Advising and course selection will take place prior to or during Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) at the University of Delaware.

Tuition payments must be made in accordance with the University of Delaware tuition and fee payment schedule.

To enroll as a UD World Scholar, students must pay two enrollment deposits by May 1 -- $500 to confirm enrollment at UD and $500 to confirm enrollment in the World Scholars Program. Both deposit amounts are deducted from the final University bill.
