The Program in Modern Greek Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
The Program in Modern Greek Studies is a new and very dynamic academic program which was established in 2008 to foster the study of the Greek language, Greek history and culture, and to explore past and current perspectives on Hellenism. In creating this new program, our university is joining a growing trend among leading institutions of higher learning in North America, offering programs in Modern Greek Studies dedicated to the study of the language, literature, culture, and history of modern Greece. We are also continuing an educational tradition started by the Greek-American community in Chicago, one of the largest in the US and historically the first to take an active interest in Greek-speaking education, whose geographical proximity to our campus is an important asset to our efforts.
