Webster Athens Completes First Virtual Study Abroad Course

October 15, 2020

Webster Athens has successfully completed its first virtual study abroad course during Fall 1. Professor Stanley Sfekas engaged students in the Virtual Greek Mythology and Religion course through online class discussions and lectures, virtual tours of archaeological sites, museums and educational videos. The Greek Mythology and Religion course was already offered as part of the curriculum in Athens. Adding and modifying the Modern Greek Society and Culture course gave students this experience to virtually travel while staying at home. These courses allow students to learn about Greece’s historical past, which laid the foundations for Western civilization, culture, mythology, religion, philosophy, art, literature and political institutions.
