PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

The Undergraduate Programme “Studies in Hellenic Culture” introduces students to the culture developed in the Greek-speaking world from antiquity to the present day, charting its metamorphoses and transformations, its contradictions and complexities. Through this critical lens, the Programme underscores the fundamental association between cultural processes and historical determinants.

The wider goal of the Programme is to build such cognitive, metacognitive, methodological, and epistemological foundations to allow students to delve deep into the cultural phenomena at large and to realise that what one calls ‘culture’ or ‘national/ cultural identity’ is, in fact, a construct of an often grievously antagonised and anxiety-ridden, ideological and political nature. The Programme emphasises the study of primary sources (texts, artworks, archaeological material, etc.) as a means of achieving theoretical awareness and honing critical sensibilities and research skills.  

WHY CHOOSE TO ATTEND?

The Programme graduates are employable in a variety of professional sectors, such as the culture industry ( organisations, museums, cultural services, etc.), tourism, education and the civil service. Moreover, students who have completed the Modules “Ancient Greek Language” (I, II) and “Latin Language” (I, II) are eligible to participate in the Republic of Cyprus state examination to be appointed in secondary education.
