Four Greek Universities join forces to offer “The Athens MA in Ancient Philosophy”

ATHENS – The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the University of Patras and the University of Crete have joined forces to offer a competitive new English-language postgraduate study program in Ancient Philosophy.

The Athens MA in Ancient Philosophy is an intensive one-year graduate program offering in-depth knowledge of Ancient Philosophy and high-level research training in its various fields.

The Program promotes the study of Ancient Greek Philosophy in its entire historical and thematic range, from the Pre-Socratics to the philosophers of Late Antiquity, covering topics in metaphysics, ethics, epistemology, etc. It is the only program in Greece (and among a few worldwide) that focuses solely on Ancient Philosophy as a subject of systematic study and research, laying also special emphasis on the historical background and modern reception of Ancient Philosophy.

Courses will be taught in Athens by professors from Greek universities, as well as by visiting scholars from international institutions. Upon completion of the Program, students will be able to conduct both independent and collaborative research and will be well prepared to undertake doctoral studies. The Program is offered in-person only and admits up to 20 students per academic year.

Candidates can submit their applications up until June 30. The program starts on October 1, 2023. For more information, visit https://athensma.phs.uoa.gr.
