Introduction

The Two-Year Academic Program in Ancient Philology focuses on Ancient Greek and Biblical Hebrew and offers intensive full immersion language training in both languages. Students will gain the ability to read moderately difficult narrative texts without the need of a dictionary/translation, save for rare occasions. Students complete the program with courses in linguistics, philology, philosophy, paleography, history, and literature. Some of these courses are taught in Ancient Greek.

This program is ideal for people interested in a career teaching Ancient Greek and/or Biblical Hebrew, as well as for scholars interested in Antiquity, classical philosophy, classical philology, religious studies, or the connection between Greek Antiquity and Judeo-Christian heritage.

Graduates of this program, or students registered in the second year, may apply to be streamed into the one-year Emphasis in Teaching Ancient & Modern Languages track, which focuses on preparing the student for a career in teaching languages in an immersive setting. Students gain first-hand experience teaching as well as participating in methodological courses and workshops. This track grants an additional 8.5 ECTS credits free of charge.

Application forms available online, by email, or in person. Scholarships available.

The Polis Institute does not award academic degrees. Students who successfully complete this program may register at the International University of Catalonia (Barcelona, Spain) and be awarded a Master’s of Arts Degree in Ancient Philology by that institution once they have fulfilled its requirements. Please note that the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) credits are awarded by the accrediting institution and not by the Polis Institute.

1 ECTS Credit = 10 academic hours

Alternative One-Year Program

A shortened version of the Two-Year Program is available to students with a BA Degree wishing to study for only one year. Students will complete 600 academic hours including 440 hours of mandatory language courses. Scholarships and other teaching and research opportunities are also valid for the One-Year Program. Upon graduation, students will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Polis Institute.
