The aim of the M.A. program in Modern Greek is to deepen the knowledge and language competence that students have acquired during their B.A. studies and to extend their understanding of the development of Greek language, history, and culture. Special attention is devoted to the language and literature of the Byzantine and Early Modern period. Students deepen their expertise in synchronic approaches to linguistics, literary criticism, or comparative approaches to literature by attending elective courses.
This is a full-time study program. It means that your study duties are spread over the working days (Mon-Fri) according to your timetable. Full-time students participate in lectures, conferences, and educational and research activities of the workplace.
Graduates of the M.A. programme in Modern Greek Language and Literature will find work opportunities in a number of professional fields. They can continue their studies in a Ph.D. programme in the Czech Republic or abroad and continue their formation as researchers and teachers. They are well-equipped to work in tourism or business where knowledge of Greek is required (at travel agencies, as guides, in the business or banking sectors). After additional schooling, they may also work as translators or for non-profit organizations operating in Greece as part of international assistance. Thanks to their familiarity with philological work, they are also prepared for editorial work, especially in culturally and literarily oriented publications. They can find further job opportunities in professions that require general education, independent critical thinking, and solid language skills.
This fee-paying degree program is open to those holding a Bachelor's degree in a field related to Greek philology (Modern, Byzantine, Ancient Greek, Mediterranean studies, etc.) from an institution of higher education in the Czech Republic or abroad. Fluency in Modern Greek (at least at the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Language, to be tested during the oral interview) is necessary.
