Greek FlagsWelcome to the Program in Modern Greek Studies at Rutgers University.  Ours is an interdisciplinary enterprise that offers an undergraduate minor, along with outreach events for the Rutgers and wider New Brunswick community interested in “things modern Greek.”

By our definition at Rutgers, Modern Greek Studies explores the language, literature, history, society and culture of Greek-speaking people from the Byzantine period through contemporary times.  Our courses in elementary, intermediate, and advanced modern Greek are anchored within the program and are taught by native speakers with proven expertise in teaching the language to American university students.  Most other courses are cross-listed with affiliated departments, and are typically taught by tenured Rutgers faculty with outstanding credentials in their fields.
