To the roots of our civilization.
The master’s degree study focuses on deepening the knowledge and linguistic competences gained in the Bachelor study programme. Moreover, the knowledge is broadened with the complete development of Greek language, Greek dialects, and literature (as well as history and culture, in general) in the periods following Hellenistic era. Reading of Greek texts focuses on the territories outside Attica and on the texts of pre-Classical and post-Classical periods. Their understanding is possible only on the grounds of the detailed knowledge of phonological and morphological development of Greek language in its whole extent. The knowledge of the development of Modern Greek crowns complex understanding of language in its whole history. Students specialise according to their own choices of optional courses in the following areas: diachronic linguistics, history of literature, and ancient history.
Graduates are qualified to work as teachers at secondary schools and some universities. Thanks to the deep knowledge of ancient culture, history and literature, they may work in humanities-oriented departments of the Czech Academy of Sciences, archives, libraries, museums, bookshops, travel agencies, and, possibly, in diplomacy. By virtue of the focus on the handling of language, the graduates are also prepared for various editorial jobs in media (in culture- and literature-oriented sections, in particular) and in the publishing houses. Besides jobs in the field of study (scholarly and research activities, translation), the graduates assert themselves in all the professions requiring the ability of independent and critical thinking and excellent mother tongue language skills.
Students have a pre-defined list of required courses, which are supplemented with selective and elective courses. The student pays full attention to the single field of study chosen.
