University of Nicosia announces MA Programme in Greek Civilisation

University of Nicosia announces MA Programme in Greek Civilisation

The MA programme in Greek Civilization is offered in English via distance learning. It explores the multifaceted phenomenon of Greek civilisation, both in its diachronic and in its thematic range.

At the core of its design lies the investigation of the fundamental Greek concepts and values that shaped and are still central to the modern Western world. Freedom, democracy, aesthetics, logic and the search for truth and scientific knowledge are some of the areas the programme explores.

The programme covers the main body of Greek culture offering students a unique educational opportunity. In particular, the programme gives candidates the opportunity for an in-depth study, through specialized bibliography in English, of a number of topics.

Courses draw on thematic material from various disciplines in the field of Greek civilization such as history, philosophy, literature, science, the arts and language.

Moreover, students will deal with topics that attract international interest as they combine aspects of Greek antiquity with contemporary culture, such as contemporary stage approaches of ancient drama, Modern Greek cinema, Greek printing history, and digital culture.

The Academic Faculty consists of a team of internationally acclaimed experts from various disciplines from the whole spectrum of Letters, Arts and Culture with a team of many significant academic accomplishments, extensive international research and publications.

The Programme provides a strong academic and professional foundation for students who wish to pursue a career in the fields of Humanities, Cultural Studies, Heritage and the Arts, and who aspire to be actively engaged in research and education on Greek cultural studies, and achieve admission to PhD programmes in related fields. Applicants from different academic backgrounds (humanities, arts, social sciences, educational sciences, as well as sciences, law and medical studies) are welcome to the Programme.

The MA Programme in Greek Civilization offers a generous scholarship scheme titled ‘Aristeia’ [Excellency] with attractive scholarship and grant opportunities based on multiple criteria such as academic merit, origin/nationality and financial needs.
