The research Master's programme in Classics and Ancient Civilizations trains you to be a researcher in the field of Ancient Studies. This includes Classics, Archaeology, Ancient History and Ancient Near Eastern Studies. You will focus on the languages, cultures and history of the Mediterranean region, Western Europe and Western Asia in the period from 1600 BC to 500 AD.
The research Master's programme in Classics and Ancient Civilizations offers a good mix of disciplinary and interdisciplinary teaching and research. Disciplinary because the programme builds on the specializations offered in your Bachelor's programme; interdisciplinary because you make use of the results of related disciplines during the so-called 'core modules'. These are two interdisciplinary courses, in which members of the teaching staff from various disciplines from the department of Archaeology, Classics and Near Eastern Studies teach you how to approach a shared research theme from different perspectives and to provide theoretical underpinning for this theme. Opting for the research Master's programma will bring you into an inspiring research environment.
