The Melathron Center at Mycenae, Greece, hosts the GREEK ODYSSEY study abroad program for undergraduate students, accredited by the University of South Carolina ('school of record' 2017-2022) and endorsed by the International University Alliance (IUA) and the Study In Greece (Official Portal of the Hellenic Republic).

The academic curriculum includes interdisciplinary courses in field archaeology, archaeology, geophysics, geoarchaeology, bioarchaeology, paleo-environmental studies, archaeometry, archaeoastronomy, cultural heritage management, classics, history, art, studio art, and theatrical studies, requiring no prior experience in archaeology, transcending disciplines, and engaging majors from across the spectrum, sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities. All courses are taught in English by prominent Greek and American professors. 

Students study at the Melathron Center at legendary Mycenae, reside at Argos and Nafplion, where they immerse in the local culture and life, and participate in organised field trips and study tours in the Peloponnese and nearby islands in the weekends. This intensive study abroad program offers an unparalleled experience for students to spend a semester, Maymester, or a summer month in one of the most spectacular regions of Greece, study and travel all over mainland Greece and the islands, while doing hands-on archeological work and learning basic skills that will serve them regardless of major and career. The enthusiastic comments of participating students and senior administrators attest to the distinctive quality our study abroad programs.
