Review of the curriculum and recommended curriculum

Overview

In the recommended curriculum that follows general and mandatory courses precede  specialized courses, so that students acquire a foundation of basic skills that will enable them to better assimilate specialized courses. Therefore, the first teaching terms comprise general courses and the last terms consist of specialized courses.

The distribution of courses into teaching terms is indicative rather than mandatory for the student, who may combine his/her courses freely, depending on their availability.

It is recommended that general precede specialized courses. Students should draw up their weekly schedule keeping in mind that their classes should not overlap.

The organisation of the curriculum has been adapted to the minimum number of eight teaching terms and to the minimum number of required courses, as analysed above.

Students may choose those selective courses which suit their interests, if these are available.

Twice a year, in the winter and spring semesters, students must state all the courses for which they intend to take exams. These statements are submitted through the following internet address: http://my-studies.uoa.gr They may use their own computers or the computers in the Library of History, the Library of Archaeology (6th floor), the Faculty IT lab (8th floor) or the University Club (15 Hippocratous St.)

For courses offered by more than one teachers students are required to state the teacher of their preference one week after the beginning of classes. Registered students will be assigned to each teacher, unless the respective department has decided otherwise.

Failure in a mandatory course implies that the student must retake the same course. If a student fails a selective course, he/she may take another course. Students who have graduated wishing to register in the alternative studies orientation are not permitted to take the selective courses they have already passed in their first round of studies.

A recommended curriculum by teaching terms along with useful notes are listed below.
