    Chairperson: Elizabeth Kefallinos

    The program for Modern Greek was founded in 1988 by the late Vassili Georgiou. It has been operating regularly since 1997 with the generous support of the Greek Studies Foundation. The program’s aim is to offer a sound knowledge of the Greek language and Greek culture, by providing intensive language courses and critical analysis of Greek literature, history, and culture. It is noteworthy that Greek is one of the nine most widely disseminated languages in Australia.
    Three levels of courses are offered: Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced. Students may choose Greek as their Major or choose some of the program’s courses according to their needs. The Diploma of Languages (Greek) has been established in 2001.
    With the cooperation of the University of Athens, students of the Greek language take part in language courses during their summer vacation in Greece.
    Dr. Elizabeth Kefallinos is a member of the faculty. She specializes in contemporary Greek literature and poetry, the history of the Greek language, and the literature of Greek-Australians.
    Modern Greek as a foreign language is taught by Eleni Kritsotaki (appointed by the Greek Ministry of Education).
