Introduction
The Department of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies includes the fields of Byzantine Philology, Modern Greek Studies, Comparative Literature, Theory of Literature and Linguistics.

Among the Department's immediate priorities are:

  1. to develop postgraduate programmes in the remaining academic fields of the Department; and
  2. to establish stronger links with the postgraduate programmes of other departments.

Both postgraduate programmes are offered at two levels: a Master Degree and a Ph.D. Degree. The postgraduate programme in Modern Greek Studies also includes seminars in a number of related areas (i.e., Comparative Literature, Theory of Literature, Linguistics, History of Art and Theatre Studies) with the aim of encouraging interdisciplinary approaches. The interdepartmental postgraduate programme in Byzantine Studies similarly aims at promoting an interdisciplinary approach in the broader field of Byzantine Studies.

The interdepartmental programme in Byzantine Studies at the level of Master Degree will start in September 2007.

Among the Department's immediate priorities are:

  1. to develop postgraduate programmes in all the academic fields of the Department and
  2. to establish stronger links with the postgraduate programmes of other departments of the University of Cyprus, as well as with other European Universities. For this purpose and to promote interdisciplinary research in the frame of the postgraduate programmes, the Department holds exchange programmes with other Universities, with the National Institute of Oriental Languages and Cultures of the University of Paris (Paris IV), the Institute of Greek and Latin Philology (Division of Byzantine and Modern Greek Philology) of the University of Hamburg, the Department of Greek Philology of the University of Athens and the Department of History of Art of the University of Granada.
