Hellenic Studies is a discipline born from the coming together of areas such as philology, history archeology, linguistics, arts and archeology. Its key purpose is to investigate how knowledge derived from these fields can be used to enhance the understanding of, and research in, Greek culture.
Our Hellenic Studies programme has a strong theoretical basis, since it offers an interdisciplinary understanding of the language, literature, history and culture of Greece. At the same time, the programme has a strongly practical component, as it includes the building of comprehensive skills in translation and language teaching. The programme offers the student the rare opportunity to experience the Greek language in the context of real life, to connect deeply with the ideas, history and culture of Hellenism, and to develop a critical perspective on the relationship between ancient and modern Greece.
