The Study of Greek
Modern Greek refers to the Greek language spoken in modern times. Approximately 17 million people speak Greek today, mainly in Greece and Cyprus, where it is the official language. In addition, it is spoken by minority and immigrant communities in many other countries.
We do not offer a major or minor in Modern Greek. If you are interested please look in to our Classics program which includes the study of Classical Greek and Latin, as well as all facets of the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome: history, philosophy, drama, history of science, textual criticism, religion, archeology and art history.
