We would like to inform potentially interested candidates of the possibilities of graduate research work (M.A. thesis or PhD) in relation with Greek studies at McGill University.
McGill’s competitive admission policy requires that students score the equivalent of a British upper-second class honours; American 3.3-3.5 /4 minimum depending on the Program;  and Greek over 7.5 (contingent to the candidate’s undergraduate program).

The deadline for the application process is January 15th but candidates are encouraged seek counsel beforehand regarding their project and to start uploading material early on, in order to avoid last-minute technical issues.

The Modern Greek studies program at McGill<https://www.greekmcgill.com/> functions within the History and Classical studies department and the admission process as well as the degrees pursued would be in History. For general information on this subject see here: http://www.mcgill.ca/history/graduate
The Program not having any competency in the fields of Literature or Philology, students envisioning graduate studies in these domains should consider applying to any of the many other University programs with dedicated specialists.

The Program is currently involved in a series of collective research programs and has secured funding from various sources (the French national research agency, the Quebec and Canada research agencies, foundations). Therefore, we welcome applications, in particular but not exclusively, from candidates wishing to work on one or more of the following research topics relevant to the Program's current research agenda.

- The Greek immigration and diaspora (2nd phase of the funded Immigrec<https://immigrec.com/> research program)
- World War One and its aftermath in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean (funded program <https://www.efa.gr/index.php/fr/armee-d-orient> of the French School at Athens)
- Educational networks and instiutions in the Eastern Mediterranean 19th-20th c. (funded program of the Quebec and Canada research agencies)
- Connected and transnational histories of Greece

Students of Greek citizenship can benefit from the following:
- the endowment by the S. Niarchos Foundation of two permanent graduate fellowships for students of Greek origin pursuing a graduate degree in any discipline at McGill;
- research training and funding in digital humanities and oral history through the Immigrec research program.

Knowledge of the French language would be a considerable asset as it would allow for a smoother integration in both Montreal and the research partnerships.
Ph.d. candidates can obtain a dual Ph.d. degree  between McGill and any French University thanks to the France/Quebec cotutelle agreement.

Recent graduates are currently (indicatively and non exhaustively): employed as a post-doctoral fellow in a German cluster of excellence research team; hired at Library and Archives Canada as professional archivists; pursuing a funded PhD in a top-tier research University.
