We welcome you to the website of the Mediterranean Studies Department at the University of the Aegean.

The Department of Mediterranean Studies of the University of the Aegean, based in the beautiful city of Rhodes, has completed more than twenty years of existence and was recently evaluated with excellent comments. It is located in the superb facilities of the University of the Aegean, in the center of the city of Rhodes, in front of the walls of the famous Medieval City.

It stands out, as the only Department of Mediterranean Studies in Greece and one of the few in the World. It moves within two concentric circles. The first circle includes the historical relationship between Greece and the Mediterranean area, and the second circle monitors the developments in the European Union and the international community. Also, through its many activities, the Department of Mediterranean Studies is connected both to the Rhodian society and the wider region of the South Aegean.

The distinct and dynamic character of our Department is a confirmed result of its uniqueness but also of its people, namely its teaching staff, its dedicated and experienced administrative personnel, our undergraduate and postgraduate students, our external associates and our alumni.

The Department of Mediterranean Studies, with its contemporary Interdisciplinary Program of Studies, always updated according to the new data in the fields of its study, aspires to provide its undergraduate and postgraduate students with the necessary skills in order for them to walk into a constantly changing future, a future which is rapidly forming and even more rapidly reforming.

In the face of new challenges and prospects, together, we will continue and achieve even more.
