Welcome

The Program in Hellenic Studies offers an undergraduate curriculum in Modern Greek and Greek Diaspora Studies, interdepartmental support for graduate students working on Greece and the Balkans, and a series of events and conferences for the larger academic and Greek communities in the New York area. Under the auspices of the Classics Department, the Program allows students to study Greece through a contemporary lens and prepares them for further academic study and later professional work in the field. Students are encouraged to study in Greece in the summer and during their Junior year. The curriculum aims to build a strong linguistic base, a knowledge of the field, and a theoretical framework for analyzing cultural difference more generally.

Columbia Global Seminar in Istanbul: Byzantine and Modern Greek Encounters
Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Columbia University has launched a new spring semester study abroad program in Istanbul, building upon existing relationships with Boğaziçi University, the Columbia Global Centers I Turkey, and Studio X. The program is anchored by two seminars, taught by two distinguished Columbia faculty, that address the question of how, from the Middle Ages to the present, westerners have interpreted and incorporated features of Greek culture.
