The taught elements of this Modern Greek Studies course at Univerity of Birmingham 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 three taught modules (further module information is available below) and a 20,000-word supervised research thesis on a topic of your choice in Modern Greek Studies.
Graduates with a postgraduate degree in Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies can boast a wide combination of skills that can be applied in many types of work and which employers regard very positively.
That's why 100% of the Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies postgraduates were in employment or further study within six months of graduating. The graduates have gone on to pursue academic posts at institutions such as University of Vienna, University of Birmingham and University of Warwick.
