Option B - Postgraduate studies

Courses

Subject - Content - Structure

The Graduate Program is 2 years (4 semesters). The first year comprises two semester courses and two thematic workshops distributed equally in the two semesters. The second year comprises the Research Methodology Laboratory in the third semester and the fourth semester the preparation of the Postgraduate Thesis. The Workshops aim to train students in the interdisciplinary synergies between different disciplines and research fields.

The educational process is enriched with lectures by invited speakers, academics, professionals and institutional representatives. At the same time, workshops and study visits are organized. Course attendance is compulsory.  All courses are six-monthly and are taught in Greek. In the case of participation by foreign students, they may also be taught in English. The method of examining the courses is determined by the instructor and is conducted exclusively in two (2) exam periods, one regular and one repetitive.

The minimum number of courses to obtain a Postgraduate Degree is as follows:
• Six (6) elective postgraduate courses, three (3) per semester • Two (2) compulsory thematic workshops, one (1) per semester, combining courses from the same specialization. • One (1) Research Methodology Laboratory mandatory, one (1) semester
