Description

Throughout this course you will be reading Greek literature from Classical Antiquity and up till Early Byzantine times, with a focus on the difference between mythos and logos, between mythological narration and ordered (rhetorical/philosophical) presentation. All ancient and medieval texts are read in translation.

We will read a selection of texts by famous Greek authors – Sappho, Homer, Sophocles, Euripides, Herodotus, Plato, Lucian, Plutarch, Plotinus, and many others. When analyzing the texts, we will compare ancient and modern theories of interpretation and investigate the historical continuity in the use of ancient rhetorical theory.

The course is a compulsory component of the Master of Arts (120 credits) programme in Language and Linguistics specialising in Greek/Modern Greek. It can also be taken as a freestanding course. It can normally be included in a first or second cycle degree. With the approval of the relevant authenticating body, it can also be included in certain professional degrees.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on universityadmissions.se. You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
