Housed within the UC Berkeley Institute of European Studies, the Modern Greek and Hellenic Studies Program builds an intellectual community around shared cultural and creative interests in contemporary Greece and the Greek diaspora around the globe. Supported by the Modern Greek Studies Foundation and in partnership with the Consulate General of Greece in San Francisco, the Program deepens relations between UC Berkeley and Modern Greek initiatives across four key areas:
We foster scientific cooperation with universities and research centers, and support student scholarships for study in Greece
- History and Culture
In partnership with the Modern Greek Studies Foundation, the Greek Consulate and cultural organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, we host public programs with notable writers, scholars, scientists, entrepreneurs, and artists.
We host diplomats and politicians to promote and deepen Greek-American relations.
Through a focus on Greek business, technology and creativity, from Greece to Silicon Valley, we aim to make the program a dynamic hub where culture and innovation meet.
