IIP Placements in Greece
College Year in Athens
Location: Athens, Greece
College Year in Athens (CYA) is a study abroad program focused on the history and civilization of Greece and the East Mediterranean region. Its mission is to offer each student an academically rigorous program of studies combined with the vibrant experience of day-to-day contact with the people, monuments, and landscape of Greece--a rapidly changing country with a uniquely varied past. The IIP intern will assist the Associate Academic Director with a variety of tasks related to educational support and research. In terms of specific responsibilities, the IIP intern will assist in the organization of faculty development workshops (research as well as the preparation of printed materials). The IIP intern will also assist in updating and expanding the CYA Faculty Handbook and the Student Handbook, providing recommendations and describing procedures and regulations, which will require extensive research and meticulous detailing of procedures. In addition, the IIP intern will assist in the digitization of CYA's Historical Archives (the development and contextualization process) and will follow on-site classes and produce digital and written material to be used in social media. IIP candidates must be in their sophomore or junior year and demonstrate a high level of accuracy, attention to detail, and dependability. IIP candidates with a background in the humanities and social sciences with specific interest in Greece and southern Europe are encouraged to apply. Modern Greek would be an asset but is not required. One placement has been created for an International Internship Program (IIP) intern.
