About Kallinikeion Institute 

The Kallinikeion Institute at Hellenic College Holy Cross is an intensive Modern Greek language program sponsored by the Kallinikeion Foundation. The program offers two courses in Modern Greek, one at the Beginning and one at the Intermediate level. Each course meets for an average of 5h/day, Monday through Friday, offering 102 hours of instruction in Modern Greek and 6 credits towards graduation. 

The Kallinikeion Institute provides its students with an abundance of opportunities to explore Greek culture, music, and literature, through program activities and HCHC resources. In the inspiring Boston academic environment, Kallinikeion students combine their study of Modern Greek with museum visits, traditional Greek music concerts, Greek poetry recitation, and other educational events. 

All HCHC students are eligible for scholarships.
