Greek (Modern) Language and Culture Minor

Effective Winter 2016


The minor in Greek (Modern) Language and Culture is not open to students with a major in Greek (Modern) Language and Culture or any other minor in the Department of Classical Studies.


Students wishing to pursue a minor in Classical Studies must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with the Department's designated advisor . Appointments may be scheduled at 2160 Angell Hall.

Grade Policies

The department requires that a student earn a grade of at least C– in all language courses which are prerequisite for subsequent elections. A student should repeat any language course in which a D+ or lower grade is earned and which serves as a prerequisite to other courses which are to be elected. A grade of D+ signifies some achievement but denotes too weak a foundation for subsequent courses.


GREEKMOD 201 (or MODGREEK 201), or equivalent as determined by departmental placement examination.


Minimum Credits: 16
  1. Modern Greek Language and Literature: at least two courses in modern Greek language and literature, above GREEKMOD 201 (MODGREEK 201).
  2. Modern Greek culture: at least one broad introductory course. (GREEKMOD 302 (MODGREEK 302) can be used for this requirement if not used for the language and literature requirement)
  3. Upper-Level courses: at least two upper-level (300- or 400-level) courses in modern Greek diaspora and travel.

Substitutions: Any appropriate course taught in the area of Modern Greek Studies in departments other than Classical Studies must be approved by the program advisor and the Chair in Modern Greek.
