The Institute for Balkan Studies has the pleasure to announce that Yale University has officially recognized the International Summer School for Greek Language, History and Culture, thus enabling participants to receive credits. For more information, see Yale University’s webpage.

The Summer School for Greek Language, History and Culture takes place in August in Thessaloniki and offers an intensive program directed by Prof. Dr. Dr. phil. K. A. Dimadis. Participants (foreign students, researchers in Modern Greek and related subjects, teachers and diplomats) have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of Greek society and immerse themselves for a month in the language and cultural traditions.
