The Hellenic Studies Program
The Hellenic Studies Program is administered through the Hellenic Studies Center in the Department of History. An Advisory Board consisting of the Director of the Hellenic Studies Center, the Chair of the Department of History and four additional faculty or staff members oversees the Hellenic Studies Program.
The Hellenic Studies minor emphasizes coursework and independent study in the areas of Greek language, Greek History, Greek politics, and Greek arts and literature. The Hellenic Studies curriculum includes lower and upper division classes offered by the departments of Foreign Languages, History, Humanities and Religious Studies, Philosophy, Government and Art.
The Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection in the University Library at California State University, Sacramento is an extensive resource for research and study for the campus and Sacramento regional communities, as well as scholars and researchers nationally and internationally. With its focus on the Hellenic world, the Collection contains early through contemporary materials across the social sciences and humanities relating to Greece, its neighboring countries, and the surrounding region. There is a broad representation of languages in the Collection, with a rich assortment of primary source materials.
The Center also supports, promotes and facilitates university activities and outreach to further the understanding of Greek history, society, economy, culture and language. This includes faculty research, summer training institutes, study abroad programs, seminars and visiting lecturers, and establishing collaborative links with institutions and community groups.
