Lund University offers you a unique opportunity to pursue advanced studies in languages and linguistics at Master´s level. The Centre for Languages and Literature offers students access to the most modern resources for research and education. You will meet and study together with students from 13 different fields of specialisation. Courses are taught in English or the language of your field of specialisation. As a Master´s student, you will have the possibility of receiving funding for a stay abroad to conduct research on your Master s thesis through grants available from the Birgit Rausing Language Programme.

In the specialisation in Greek/Modern Greek, students follow the development of the Greek language from antiquity to modern times. The programme involves the study of texts from various epochs, of how Greek has influenced and been influenced by other Indo-European languages, and also more in-depth studies of how Greek linguistics has evolved throughout the world. The specialisation consists of courses both directly related to and outside of the core subject. Students can choose to specialise in either Greek or Modern Greek.

Career prospects

A Master´s in Greek/Modern Greek will enable you to work in a variety of fields, for instance in education, language research, libraries and archives, publishing, ecclesiastical matters, journalism, culture, administration, politics and translation.
