Modern Greek Language and Literature

"Greek the language they gave me; poor the house on Homer's shores."

Degree programme specification

The aim of the M.A. Studies in Modern Greek is to deepen the knowledge and language competence that the students had acquired during their B.A. Studies and to extend their understanding of the development of the Greek language, history, and culture. Special attention is devoted to literature of the Byzantine and Early Modern period. Students deepen their expertise in diachronic linguistics, literary history, or translation by attending facultative classes of their own choice.

Graduate destination

Graduates of the M.A. program in Modern Greek Language and Literature will find work opportunities in a number of professional fields. They can continue their studies in a Ph.D. programme and continue their formation as researches and teachers. They are well-equipped to work in tourism or in the commercial sphere, where the knowledge of Greek is required (travel agencies, guides, business sector, banking sector), both in Greece and in the Czech Republic. They may also work as translators or work for not-for-profit organizations operating in Greece as a part of international assistance (Charity, Czech Red Cross). Thank to their familiarity with the philological work, they are also prepared for editorial work in the media, especially in culturally and literally oriented sections. They can find further job opportunities in professions that require general education, independent critical thinking, and solid language skills. The study of this program in combination with another one expands the number of work opportunities further.
