Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies

The Center

Established at Stockton College by the American Foundation for Greek Language and Culture (AFGLC) , the Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies (ICHS) aims to promote and assist in the study and teaching of Hellenism through the many fields that define Greek civilization and culture. The areas of focus of the Center are wide, inclusive and diachronic, representing all aspects of Hellenic culture. At Stockton, this includes the disciplines of Greek Language and literature, history and culture, classical archaeology, art, philosophy, politics, anthropology and Byzantine Civilization and Religion. One of our new projects is The Examined Life, an outreach program for K-12 teachers in South Jersey.
