A four-year BA program taught in English, devoted to the study of Greek Antiquity. The program is offered by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (based in its School of Philosophy), in collaboration with the International Hellenic University. Aimed at international citizens, it offers a unique opportunity to study the culture of ancient Greece while acquiring first-hand knowledge of some of Greece’s most important archaeological monuments and sites, such as the Athenian Acropolis and the Parthenon, Delphi and Olympia. The program includes courses in Greek archaeology, ancient Greek history and literature, and modern Greek. With an academic tradition of more than 180 years, the two collaborating Institutions guarantee a high quality undergraduate program, based on experiential learning and offering both the systematic disciplinary knowledge and critical and creative thinking skills.
The program offers a wide-ranging degree devoted to Classical Greek culture. Students have the opportunity to study the archaeological monuments and the history of Greece. They familiarize themselves with the ancient Greek language through the systematic examination of important ancient texts. The curriculum includes a number of classes in Modern Greek, offered free of charge to all students during the first year of their studies. The interdisciplinary nature of the program allows students to think both critically and imaginatively, write well-structured essays, as well as interpret complex sets of data.
