The BA in Hellenic Studies has a double aim. First, we develop in our students a critical understanding of the Greek civilization, in order to strengthen scholarship, teaching and research skills in all aspects of Byzantine and modern Greek culture. In doing so, we are careful to explore the relationship of Byzantine and modern Greece to the Classical tradition and the Late Antique world.

Secondly, we teach a set of practical skills which enable students to grasp the meaning of Greek culture and to carry out language teaching or translation to and from Greek, which also opens up exciting professional prospects for students.
