The principal objective of the postgraduate programme in Greek Linguistics and Literature is to capitalise on theoretical insights from contemporary linguistics and literary theory in the study of Greek literature, with special emphasis on its classical period but also on diachronic developments and didactics.



The postgraduate programme in Greek Linguistics and Literature is unique in that it integrates linguistics and literary studies. More specifically, the programme:

-deploys analytical tools from formal linguistics, text linguistics, sociolinguistics and discourse analysis in the study of literature

-has a strong interdisciplinary dimension which combines literary, cultural, sociological/anthropological and linguistic approaches

-provides skills for effective teaching

-provides the theoretical apparatus necessary for interdisciplinary approaches

-hones complex research skills necessary for doctoral studies


The Open University of Cyprus (OUC), through its participation in the European project "Liaison Offices with the Labour Market", offers to students of all its programmes of study, the optional and free of charge Thematic Unit (i.e. Module) entitled "Industry Placement". This module provides students opportunities for a placement to gain professional experience in their particular field of study, and the hosting institution can be any public or private organisation operating in the Republic of Cyprus.

Each student has the right to participate in this offering once or twice during his / her studies, provided that s/he meets the required conditions.
