Did you know that learning Greek was so easy?
Modern Greek courses cover language, literature, and culture, offering a systematic introduction to the Greek world of the last ten centuries, and especially to its contemporary social reality and intellectual achievement. As part of a broad liberal arts education, they promote the contextual study, both local and global, of contemporary Greek culture, placing particular emphasis on literary studies, critical theory, cultural politics, ethnicity, and diaspora (especially Greek-American).
Mastery of Modern Greek enables students to consider careers in such fields as government, international trade, banking, print or electronic media, the travel industry, and other professions. After graduation, people with solid Modern Greek training have gone into law, medicine, engineering, education, journalism, public or private businesses and institutions as well as graduate school. Modern Greek gives students the close faculty attention of a small interdisciplinary program while putting at their disposal the vast resources of one of the largest research universities in the world.
