The Postgraduate Programme of the Faculty

The Postgraduate Programme of the Faculty of History and Archaeology is designed:

  • to offer a series of specialised courses to a limited number of students, providing in-depth knowledge on fields and methods taught in the Faculty, leading to a Master's degree.
  • to organise, supervise and support candidates to conduct original research in the same fields leading to a doctoral dissertation.

There are two cycles of study.The first is a two-year cycle and offers specialised research-oriented seminars, leading to the writing of a Master's thesis and to a Master's degree. Students who obtain a Master's degree may then be admitted to the second cycle and begin their doctoral dissertation.

The series of courses leading to a Master's degree consists of two fields of study:

  • Archaeology and Art History which includes Prehistoric Archaeology, Classical Archaeology, Byzantine Archaeology and Art History
  • History which includes Ancient History, Byzantine History, European History and Modern and Contemporary Greek History.

Admission to the first cycle of the postgraduate programme is through entrance exams according to the programme's by-laws, which are issued annually.
