Academics

The language component of the curriculum includes four core courses of Greek language at the elementary and intermediate level, and two elective courses of advanced Greek, along with a series of independent readings on a variety of topics. In cooperation with the Simon Fraser University in Canada, an online course, the Odysseas LanguageTutor, is offered to every enrolled student as a supplement. The use of technology is also integrated into the teaching of Modern Greek at Harvard. Courses are held on a weekly basis in the Language Resource Center. The instruction of Modern Greek at Harvard focuses on excellence and innovation not only in the classroom but also in research, which aims to bring Modern Greek language instruction to the forefront of L2 Acquisition. Inquiries about the language component of the curriculum should be addressed to the Preceptor of Modern Greek, Calliope Dourou.
