The Program of Modern Hellenic Studies provides students with a comprehensive and interdisciplinary perspective of the language, literature, history, politics and culture of Modern Greece, from the fall of the Byzantine Empire to the present time. Through a wide range of courses, students are exposed to a variety of topics which allow them to appreciate the historical, geographical, religious, cultural and political realities of Modern Greece and matters related to Greece, as well as the means in which Greece has assimilated the multifaceted phases of its past and homogenized them as part of its own self. In the perspective of multiculturalism, the Program also focuses on the position of Modern Greece as a crossroads between Western Europe, Mediterranean countries and the Middle East. In addition, the students will get to learn the literary and artistic traditions of a country that the Western world regards as the cradle of Western civilization.
The Program, sponsored by the Onassis Foundation, offers numerous cultural and intellectual activities, lectures given by Greek scholars, conferences and educational trips to Greece. Also, the Program of Modern Hellenic Studies in the University of Haifa gives students the opportunity to study in Greece during the summer. A number of scholarships are granted every year to outstanding students of the program.
