Call for Application: Hellenistic Studies Diploma and MA Programs

Posted on

The BA Alexandria Center for Hellenistic Studies is announcing a call for applications for its Hellenistic Studies diploma and MA programs, which are set to begin on 24 September 2016.

The Center offers these programs in cooperation with the Vardinoyannis Foundation and Alexandria University. University graduates are welcome to apply for the diploma or MA degree and select one of the following fields of Hellenistic Studies: history, literature, art, archaeology and architecture, and philosophy and science.

Graduates of the department of archaeology or Greek and Roman studies are welcome to apply directly for the MA program. However, non-specialized students are required to apply for the diploma before qualifying for the MA program. The courses of the one-year diploma are all taught in English. The deadline for applying to the programs is 15 September 2016.

The BA Alexandria Center for Hellenistic Studies focuses on an important era in Alexandrian history; the era during which the city of Alexandria was established until the age of the Ptolemaic dynasty and the end of Queen Cleopatra’s reign. Despite its importance, as it represents more than 700 years of Egyptian-Greek history, this era has not been given enough attention through studies and research.
