The full immersion social oriented study abroad program allows students to interact with other artists, sculptors and writers in the Greek and International community of artists living and working on Paros, Greece.


Founded in the year 2000, Hellenic International Studies in the Arts (HISA) is located in the historical and classical landscape of Paros, Greece, bringing together an interaction between students who desire more than a traditional lecture format with talented teachers and artists who wish to share their experience and knowledge. Drawing on extensive and diverse backgrounds in university teaching and administration, international art and academic seminars, the HISA group has consolidated their experience into a unique and creative learning environment.

The broad range of HISA’s studio and liberal art courses have been carefully organized to meet the ambitious aspirations and goals of contemporary university students. HISA’s educational organization status incorporated in the US allows us to offer a top-quality program at a reduced tuition. Although HISA is an independent, autonomous program, and creates its own syllabi and curriculum structure, individualized and tutorial in manner, all core courses are accredited by an American university. Students requiring an official transcript from HISA’s school of record will be given the relevant information and registration forms during the Orientation Session.
