Mentor is the only provider to design and offer short-term study abroad programmes especially designed for deaf and hard of hearing international students. It is an ambitious project that offers premium educational opportunities, combined with routes focused on Ancient Greek culture (with a vision to covering the whole time frame of Greek culture). The aim is for experienced Sign interpreters and our partners to provide accessible services to the deaf and hard of hearing students from around the world, through making the best use of the academic experience of the Hellenic American University and capitalising Mentor’s expertise in developing interactive cultural routes.
Passionate about connecting Ancient Greece’s culture and philosophy to today, οur bold mission is to enhance the appreciation and comprehension of students around the world about the astonishing so-called birthplace of Western Civilisation in an interactive, stimulating and most importantly, inclusive way.
- The Origins of Theatre-Ancient Greek Drama
- Homeric Routes
- The Minoan Civilisation
- The 5 Sacred Cities of Ancient Greece
- Alexander the Great & the Hellenistic Age
In addition to the above mentioned programmes, Mentor works with experienced partners in sign language interpretation to create specialised tailor-made programmes, e.g. “Government & Politics in the light of the recent Financial & Refugee crisis in contemporary Greece”, to suit each faculty’s needs and preferences. The courses are designed with an academic purpose, therefore they are credit-bearing and consist of seminars, on-site seminars and academic assignments. This, again, is completely customisable and the 10 fixed programmes can be seen as examples of what this partnership can accomplish.
