The programme combines theoretical training and on-field application in Physical Education and Sports Science, with courses taking place at NYC Athens Campus, a world-class downtown college campus, in the same neighborhood where knowledge and civilization were born. As to the applied part of the programme, New York College collaborates with the historical National Gymnastics Association (Εθνικός Γυμναστικός Σύλλογος, or ΕΓΣ), founded in late 19th century and located at walking distance (just 300 meters away) from the main entrance of New York College—where courses with supervised training, experiential classes, and competitive sports are conducted.

A strong asset of this academic programme is the expertise of professors and instructors, whose distinctions include research in sports, academic publications, national and international athletic awards, professional accomplishments and multi-year academic experience in Greece and abroad (USA, UK).
