Modern Greek Studies
A major in Modern Greek Studies is mainly concerned with contemporary Greek language, history, literature and society in the last two centuries. Earlier periods (i.e. Byzantium or the New Testament period), however, are not neglected, especially in senior units.
To complete a major you must complete senior units of study in Modern Greek to the value of at least 36 credit points. Of these, no less than 18 should be in language units (i.e. MGRK2603, 2604, 2605 and 2609) and no less than 18 in non-language units. The 6 credit point Intermediate Modern Greek units (MGRK2601, 2602), for the purposes of the major, are counted as 6 credit points of language and 6 credit points of non-language study.
