The Athens MA in Ancient Philosophy, a new intensive postgraduate program, begins in a few months. The Program promotes the study of Ancient Greek Philosophy in its entire historical and thematic range. It is the only Program in Greece (and among a few worldwide) that focuses solely on Ancient Philosophy as a subject of systematic study and research. The Athens MA is the result of a collaboration between four major Greek universities, which have joined forces to create a highly competitive Program:
- National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
- Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
- University of Patras
- University of Crete
Courses will be taught in Athens by professors from Greek universities, as well as by visiting scholars from international institutions. Upon completion of the program, students will be able to conduct independent and collaborative research and will be well prepared to undertake doctoral studies. The program admits up to 20 students per academic year.
TheProgram’s duration is a full academic year (12 months – 75 ECTS): two Semesters of courses are followed by a Summer Term, during which students will prepare and submit a master’s thesis. The fees of the Program amount to 1800 €. Language of instruction is English. Knowledge of Ancient Greek and Latin is desirable but not required.
Candidates may submit their applications at any time between February 1 and June 30. The Program starts on October 1, 2023.
