    Modern Greek studies go back to 1919, the date of the foundation of the Koray Chair. The Department is the largest department of Byzantine and Modern Greek studies in Great Britain. During the 1970s the program expanded, with the initiation of undergraduate studies in Modern Greek language and literature in 1974. A postgraduate course of studies on late antiquity and Byzantine studies began in 1984 and a course on Modern Greek studies in 1990.
    Approximately 40 students attend the program, half of whom attend the postgraduate courses.
    The Department is in close co-operation with the Centre for Hellenic Studies of the College. Scholars from Greece and abroad visit the College regularly for lectures and seminars. The Centre is active in the field of publications (six publications since 1993). The Centre is in close co-operation with the Dialogos journal. The journal has been published since 1994 and covers a wide range of Greek studies.
