General Information: Towards a B.A. in Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies

The Center's program in Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies offers a structured body of courses, drawn from the Division of Arts and Sciences and the Division of Social Sciences, leading to a BA in Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies. It is designed to provide a detailed knowledge of the history, language and literature, institutions, customs and culture of the Greek people from Byzantine times to the present. Program offerings are divided into four categories:

Byzantine Studies
The Program offers courses and seminars on: The History of Byzantine Empire, Byzantine Culture and Civilization, and Byzantine Art.

Modern Greek Studies
The Program offers courses and seminars on: Modern Greek Culture and Civilization, The History of Southeastern Europe, Modern Greek History, The Formation of the Modern Greek State, The Economy of Greece, The Politics of Greece and Cyprus, Middle Eastern Politics.

Modern Greek Literature and Culture
The Program offers courses and seminars on: Modern Greek Language, Modern Greek Literature, and Greek Cinema.

Greek American Studies
The Program offers courses, seminars and workshops on: Ethnic Groups in New York, The Greek American Community, Urban Studies Workshop on the Greeks of New York.

Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies should be of special interest to those students who have either a cultural or professional interest in the Greek experience, and to those seeking to understand a culture and a civilization other than their own. Because the Program draws from several disciplines, it offers insights into the unity of knowledge and leads to a BA in Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies. The Program is also an excellent choice as a second major. It provides the background for graduate work in Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies.
