The Master's Programme “Politics, Language and Intercultural Communication” (POLICO) of the Department of Foreign Languages, Translation and Interpreting (DFLTI), examines the communicational aspect of Discourse as expressed in particular regions of the world. This examination is mainly founded on the multilevel academic study of the new cultural expression pertaining to the above-mentioned Discourse aspect. No fees apply.
POLICO aims at offering new perspectives on political-social issues by:
familiarising students with Discourse Analysis methods and to the study and with analysis of the parameters and root causes that create some important political and social phenomena
engaging students to deal with issues that combine, on one hand, the use of Language as a “tool” and, on the other, the study and analysis of concepts such as society, power, nationality/ethnicity, marginalisation, contact of civilisations, etc.
Studying at POLICO is equivalent to 90 ECTS credits (30 of which are gained after the student’s successful thesis defense).
Each 2-hour course is taught in Greek, and examinations take place in February and June in the form of:
- Written or speaking test
- Assignment preparation or presentation
- A combination of the above.
