PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

The interdisciplinary Master’s Programme ‘’PNYX: Political History, Theory and Practice’’ is a two-year programme. Combining elements from the fields of political science, history, social theory, law, economics and international relations, PNYX aims to offer a broad-spectrum, substantial and systematic course of study to every citizen seriously interested in politics.

PNYX also offers to graduates of various Bachelor’s degrees the chance to pursue postgraduate studies in a series of interesting specialisations (for example, law graduates can specialise in the philosophy of law or international law, graduates of Greek or European Studies can follow Modern History or Social Science Theory, and so forth).
