Minor in Modern Greek Studies
The Minor in Modern Greek Studies, offered by The Department of Classics at SFSU, is an interdisciplinary program for students seeking greater knowledge of contemporary Greek language, literature, history and culture. The program is designed to provide the student with an understanding of Modern Greek language, culture and society in relation to its antecedents, the ancient Greek and Byzantine civilizations.
The Minor is useful to students planning careers in literary and ethnic studies, primary, secondary and higher education, anthropology, history, sociology, translation, the arts, the foreign service, international relations and business, as well as those who desire a better understanding of contemporary Greece and the Hellenic diaspora. The interdisciplinary scope of the program also prepares the student for further study in any number of academic fields at the graduate level.
The interdisciplinary Minor in Modern Greek Studies consists of 17-19 units. A core of 2 four-unit courses will be required, and an elective group of 3 three- to four-unit courses will complete the Minor.
