Welcome to Hellenic Studies at SFU!
The Hellenic Studies Program offers courses in Ancient, Byzantine, Early Modern, and Modern Greek History, Archaeology, as well as Greek language training. In the new future, the Hellenic Studies Program will have its own website; check back soon for updates!
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies was established as a research centre in 2011 at Simon Fraser University through a significant multimillion-dollar grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Situated atop Burnaby Mountain, just east of downtown Vancouver, the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies is the premier site for Hellenic Studies in North America and is committed to the advocacy and study of Hellenism. The SNF New Media Lab, through the creation of the intelligent language tutor, has forged new methods for language learning and language preservation. The Centre also has partnerships across the United States and is leading the way in the expansion of Hellenic Studies to China.
