The MA Modern Greek Studies (Sociolinguistics) programme leads to a discipline-based, language-specific degree that draws on a wide range of socio-cultural approaches to language (including sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology and discourse analysis) for the study and analysis of Modern Greek language, text and discourse in a variety of contemporary settings: everyday interaction, popular culture, new and mass media, education and the workplace. Students on this programme will also be affiliated to the King's Centre for Language, Discourse & Communication. Leads to further research or careers in education, journalism, finance, politics and cultural sectors.
- The only programme in the UK, and one of the few in the world, that provides graduate-level specialist teaching in the field of Modern Greek Sociolinguistics within a one-year format.
- Unique combination of facilities for research and learning in the subject: the King's Maughan Library houses the premier collection of Greek publications in the UK; additional unique facilities for research in the field are available at the British Library, the National Archives, and, at King's itself, including the Centre for Language, Discourse & Communication and the Centre for Hellenic Studies.
- Regular lectures, seminars and colloquia and major international conferences organised by the Centre for Hellenic Studies bring together scholars from Greece, Cyprus, and other countries, providing an unrivalled research environment for the aspiring student.
