The MA programme explores the multifaceted phenomenon of Greek civilization, 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 programme’s overall aim is to provide a specialist, historical and systematic education, giving students the option to either complete elective courses or to produce a research thesis. Students will extend their learning and deepen their understanding of Greek cultural heritage studying in a contemporary and challenging digital environment. The programme is intended for candidates who wish to pursue a career in the fields of Letters and the Arts and aspire to be actively engaged in research and education on Greek cultural studies, or plan to seek admission to a PhD programme in related fields.

About University

The University of Nicosia (UNIC) is the largest university in Cyprus, and the largest university in Southern Europe that teaches primarily in English, welcoming over 12,000 students from over 70 countries across the globe.

UNIC has been investing in developing programmes, sometimes with partner universities focusing on global careers, building research capabilities in areas relating to the 4th industrial revolution, and improving the student experience both on-campus and online.

A Global University

In line with our strategy for internationalisation and global outreach, we have established regional study centres in Athens, Greece; Bucharest, Romania; and New York City, New York, USA. Our vision is to support our students globally and to enhance academic, research and industry collaboration with leading universities and companies around the world.

UNIC founded and operates the first and largest medical school in Cyprus, in partnership with St George’s, University of London, the only university in the UK dedicated to medicine, healthcare and science. We also offer a series of innovative joint degrees with other leading universities in Europe.

Moreover, UNIC has been a pioneer in online education in Europe, supporting both its own degree programmes, as well as those of its joint degree partners throughout the region. In this regard, UNIC was recently awarded a 5-Star QS rating for Online/Distance Learning, becoming the first university in the European Union to be recognised in this way by the QS Intelligence Unit.

UNIC also stands out for a number of global university firsts in its dynamic initiative in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. More specifically, it was the first university in the world to: (a) offer a course and Master degree programme in the field; (b) deliver graduates from a programme of this type; (c) publish academic certificates and diplomas on the blockchain.
