This course aims to introduce students to Greek literature, with an emphasis on the different genres that developed during the Hellenistic period and the characteristics of each genre and a close analysis of texts. The course will also include various forms of poetry, and the origins of drama, comedy, and prose.
The Alexandria Center for Hellenistic Studies was established as a joint collaboration between the BA, the Vardinoyannis Foundation and the University of Alexandria. Graduates of Classics departments from Egypt or elsewhere will be able to apply directly for a Masters degree; non-specialists will have to take the diploma first, and score a minimum of 80/100. Courses follow the credit hour system, with a thesis submitted at the end.
