The education offered to students of the Department of History & Archaeology aims at teaching them the methodology of resolving old and new scientific problems, guiding them to identification and search of archives, providing them any necessary knowledge on the basic specializations of History & Archaeology Studies and Folklore. Graduates are mostly employed in Secondary Education, both in public and private schools. However, there are many who continue their postgraduate studies in Greece or abroad or in relevant research institutes.
For this reason, the undergraduate course offers both core and syllabus modules (compulsory and elective), foreign language modules (English, French, German) and modules offered by faculty members from other Departments. Teaching methods also include seminars-conferences, lectures by Greek and foreign scientists, projects and special courses (design – photography). Students may further participate in excavations, field research, museum visits, archive collection projects and assignments, field trips etc.
Compulsory minimum period of study: eight (8) semesters.
