    Special Features

    A stimulating and friendly environment is enhanced by a weekly lecture, text seminars and a programme of colloquia, conferences and day schools. Belfast Byzantine Texts and Translations publishes the work of Belfast Byzantinists, and a Modern Greek publication series is in preparation. Library resources are excellent.

    Teaching in a range of medieval and modern languages (ab initio when needed) is provided for postgraduates within the Institute or in other Schools. The Byzantine Greek Summer School is available in June/July for those who want to begin or to develop their knowledge of medieval Greek before embarking on the MA course. The wide range of modules allows students to specialise in either Byzantine Studies or Modern Greek or to pursue a combination of the two.

    Our MA graduates usually proceed to the PhD, but some find employment in arts administration, teaching and the civil service.
