The taught elements of this course give you the opportunity to enhance your knowledge and understanding of critical theory, linguistic skills or historical methodology, in addition to translation strategies, literary movements or wider cultural, historical or political developments.
Overall, the programme enables you to situate your research in relation to disciplinary and interdisciplinary intellectual traditions, and provides both a foundation for doctoral research and also a chance to enrich your previous understanding in different areas of Modern Greek Studies.
It is made up of 60 credits of taught modules (see the modules section below) and 120 credits achieved through a 20,000 word supervised research project on topic of your choice in Modern Greek Studies. We recommend that you discuss your proposed research project with a potential supervisor before applying.
