Subject: FYI:  MA in Southeast European Studies

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I would like to give information that you may want to share with your students and other faculty about the MA in Southeast European Studies at the University of Athens, an intense one- year graduate program, taught in English, that aims to provide an in-depth knowledge of the political, economic, social, and cultural realities of the region.

The Program is primarily addressed to graduates in the social sciences and humanities (politics, sociology, economics, social anthropology, political and social history, modern Greek studies, Balkan studies, journalism, etc.). It has a strong international character and actively encourages the participation of students from around the world. During its fifteen-year-old history, it has received some four hundred students from thirty six different countries. Several alumni are employed in government, business, the academia, NGOs, and international organizations.

The Program syllabus offers a multidisciplinary approach to the particularities of Southeastern Europe both as a regional unit and as set of separate societies. Courses currently taught are: "Political Change: Democracy and Crisis in Southeastern Europe"; "Interconnected Histories:
The Balkans and the Black Sea from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Centuries"; "European Union Enlargement in Southeastern Europe and Beyond"; "Nationalism in Southeastern Europe"; "Economic Transition Pathways in Southeastern Europe: Disruptions, Challenges, Prospects"; "Post-Conflict Southeastern Europe: Memories, Identities, Policies"; and "Turkish Politics and Foreign Policy". A new course on "Greece and the Financial Crisis" will very likely be added for the academic year 2015-2016. The Program also offers a wide range of guest lectures on a regular basis, by academics, politicians, diplomats, business people and journalists with immediate experience of the region and its problems.

The Program receives up to twenty-five graduate students every year.  The Fees are 1500 euros.

If you wish to have more information about the program, please feel free to write to Professor Pantelis Lekkas, the Director of the Program and an Onassis Senior Visiting Scholar at plekkas at pspa.uoa.gr.

Warm Greetings to all,
