As of October 2013, the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages will suspend the teaching of Modern Greek as a full Tripos language on financial grounds. If the proposed changes go ahead, no student will emerge from Cambridge with any more than a cursory knowledge of Modern Greek language and culture. Cambridge is one of only three universities in the United Kingdom which offer a full undergraduate degree course with a specialisation in Modern Greek.
Semele Assinder has posted a petition urging the Medieval and Modern Languages Faculty in the strongest possible terms to reconsider. Please consider signing, even if you are cynical about the efficacy of online petitions.
