Modern Greek language and Literature
"Greek the language they gave me; poor the house on Homer's shores."
The aim of the M.A. programme 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.
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.
