School of Philosophy Department of History and Archaeology

The Department of History and Archaeology of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens welcomes you to its website, which is devoted to its function, its activities and its people. The Department was established in 1932, within the then undivided School of Philosophy, while classes in History, Archaeology and History of Art had been taught systematically in the School already since 1837. It operates as an independent Department since 1984 and combined a long disciplinary tradition with contemporary teaching practice and international research presence. It offers a significant number of Postgraduate Study Programmes, as well as the possibility of PhD and post-doctoral research. 

The teaching and research actions of the Department aim at the interpretative approach of historical phenomena and of the material remains of human activity in the past (see details in the Aims of the Department). Its research projects include excavations in Greece, Cyprus and the eastern Mediterranean and museum as well as archival and other historical research activities. The studies offered by the Department of History and Archaeology constitute a travel in time and space through diverse methodological approaches: from Prehistory to the modern era and from the area of Greece and the eastern Medfiterranean to Europe and the rest of the world.
