Unbound Prometheus Program of Summer Courses Kavala, Greece
May 13-21, July 8-21, And July 22-August 4 2018
Unbound Prometheus, a program of summer courses affiliated with Democritus University, offers a wide variety of subjects in summer 2018: Political Science, Creativity Studies, Finance, Positive Psychology, Literature, Business, High-Energy Physics, Data Analytics, Ethics, History, Digital Marketing, Screenwriting, Economics, Ecology, and Visual Arts. The program takes place in Kavala, one of the most picturesque towns in Greece situated along the northern Aegean coastline.
Unbound Prometheus is unique in that it offers the highest quality on the academic side but also in terms of accommodations and planned activities. All of our professors are academics in top western universities and colleges or public intellectuals and artists with global reputations.
There will be three programs in 2018, one in May and two in July. The May program will begin with a 5-day stay in Kavala in the 5-star Lucy hotel where the lectures will take place and then it will move to a gorgeous resort in the island of Thassos for two days of fun before returning to Kavala prior to departure. The more intensive July programs will last for 13 days while also staying at Lucy hotel. The planned activities include a tour of Thassos by boat or bus and a cruise with sailing boats along Kavala’s coastline (May program).
The cost of the entire package (tuition, room and board, activities, etc.) is $2700 (or €2253) for the July programs and $1662 (or €1387) for the one in May. We also offer a reduced price to those who escort one of our students but do not wish to register for a course themselves (e.g., a friend or a relative) as well as discounts to those who register for more than one course. Special rates apply to Greek residents due to the economic crisis.
Our courses can be taken by:
- Undergraduate college students who wish to enrich their education and enhance their preparation for graduate studies. Students who earn top grades might also request a reference letter from their course instructor to be used in graduate school or transfer applications.
- Students in the last two grades of high school who intend to apply to universities and wish to improve the quality of their applications through such coursework and perhaps through a reference from one of our professors.
- Adults wishing to have a fun educational experience.
All courses are taught in English. Lectures will take place during the weekdays of each program.
Registration Deadline: The registration deadline was March 1st 2018. It has been extended indefinitely until the hotel becomes fully booked. Since such notice can come at any moment between now and the beginning of our programs, it is essential prospective students register as soon as possible.
Students are strongly encouraged to consider combining attendance to one of our programs with scheduling visits to tourist attractions in other regions of Greece. Tourist visits to Greece keep reaching record levels in each of the past several years.
