Courses Offered Each Semester at the Drury Center in Greece
The semester curriculum at the DCG emphasizes architectural studies while remaining interdisciplinary in nature. Students majoring in architecture can fulfill studio requirements while students from other majors are able to satisfy other requirements (such as cultural or urban studies or foreign language). Students from other universities will work closely with the Study Abroad office in order to ensure the smooth transfer of credits from Drury University.
