Graduate Course of Study
Course of Study
Our graduate students combine advanced training in their home department with additional coursework (graduate seminars, reading courses, or tutorials) in post-Classical Greek Studies and a dissertation on some aspect of the Classical tradition, or a Byzantine or Modern Greek topic. Graduate students enroll in one of Princeton's departments and are expected to satisfy all the departmental requirements for the Ph.D. degree before undertaking their dissertation research. Students follow an individual course of study approved by their home department, in consultation with Hellenic Studies faculty.
The Program in Hellenic Studies also collaborates closely with the Program in the Ancient World, the Program in Judaic Studies, the Group for the Study of Late Antiquity, the Program in Medieval Studies, and the Committee for Renaissance Studies.
Students receive their Ph.D. degree in the academic discipline of the department in which they are enrolled. Princeton does not offer a Ph.D. degree in Byzantine or Modern Greek Studies.
Classics students who also study Byzantine or modern Greek language, literature, history, or culture may enroll in the Ph.D. Program in Classical and Hellenic Studies administered through the Department of Classics in cooperation with the Program in Hellenic Studies.
