NC State University College of Design Study Abroad Program

GREECE: DESIGN + SOCIAL INNOVATION

THE PROGRAM

Study abroad in

Greece this summer

Welcome to the student-run blog for the NC State Greece program. This program, a summer course taught by Professor Scott Townsend on Design and Social Innovation, is all about using design in a new way to create solutions within local communities through research and immersive experiences. You’ll have the chance to work on a site-specific and collaborative projects with real clients in the community. Because the program is research and participation focused, it offers an entirely different experience than a traditional study abroad program, allowing you more room to learn and implement your design solutions- not to mention the beautiful scenery.
