The department was founded in May, 1992 according to the representation of the All-Union society of Soviet Greeks, Crimean society of Greeks and the governing body of Simferopol State University for training teachers of the Modern Greek language and interpreters with the aim to solve the problem of national culture revival of the Crimean Greeks, who were returning to their historical motherland after 1944 Deportation.

The first Head of the Department was Doctor of Philology, Professor A.S. Kozlov. From 1997 to 2003 a great contribution to the department development was made under the guidance of L.V. Pavlenko ,Ph.D, Associate Professor.

Since 2003 the Head of the Department is E.Sh.Isayev, Ph.D., AssociateProfessor. Since 1995 a number of subjects are delivered by lecturers from Greece, sent on an official trip by the Ministry of Education and Religion of the Republic of Greece.

The department supports business and cultural relations with Kapodistria University of Athens, Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Yannina University, Shevchenko Kiev National University and Lomonosov Moscow State University, where leading specialists in the field of neohellenistic studies work. Due to the active assistance of Greek state and public organizations and universities, an original library has been set up at the department. It comprises literature on methods of teaching, scientific and belles-letters books in Greek. From15 to 20 students and lecturers of the Department every year go to Greece to participate in summer cultural and educational programmes financed by the Greek state. Besides, the lecturers have an opportunity to improve their professional skills and do some scientific researches in the Universities of the Republic of Greece due to the wide range of scholarships. Because of the unique character of the department and the absence (until 1996 ) of similar departments in the CIS, the staff, being assisted by specialists and scientists from Kiev and Moscow universities, has prepared 16 theoretical, practical and special courses, 8 manuals, 5 of which have been published in numerous copies and are used as manuals in the universities of Ukraine and Russia. Much work is being done now to prepare educational materials on methods of teaching in different aspects of teaching the Modern Greek language as a chief subject. "Taurika library" Scientific and Methodological Centre has started its activities since 1996 under the guidance of the Department. Due to the financing of Greek Alexander S. Onasis Public Fund in 1997-1999 and the grant of the Crimean Brand of "Vidrodznennya" Fund, teachers of the Modern Greek language of Crimean schools got an opportunity to improve their qualifications at the workshops of the Centre.
