The Alexandria Center for Hellenistic Studies
Since its founding by Alexander the Great in 331 BCE, and for a period of over 600 years, Alexandria was the cultural capital of the world, especially during the Ptolemaic period. The Hellenistic period – specifically in Alexandria but also throughout the Mediterranean – witnessed many achievements and contributions in all fields of knowledge that have greatly added to man’s thought and the progress of civilization.
The Alexandria Center for Hellenistic Studies, was established as a joint collaboration between the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the Onassis Foundation, the Vardinoyannis Foundation and the University of Alexandria. Graduates of departments of Classics or Archeology may apply for the Masters directly. Non-specialized students will take a one year qualifying Diploma, which qualifies candidates to apply for a Masters degree. The Center is open to scholars from around the world who are keen to obtain diplomas, Masters and Doctorates in Hellenistic studies in particular, from the departments of History, Literature, Art, Archeology and Architecture, and Philosophy and Science.
