Classics and Ancient Civilizations challenges students to become experts in the classical languages or in the cultures and religions of Ancient Greece, Rome or the Near East.
This Master's degree programme is offered jointly by two universities. The University of Amsterdam and VU Amsterdam have combined their expertise in the fields of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology in the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA). This merging of specialisations creates a stimulating environment for collaboration and study and extends your options for the supervision of your Master's thesis.
The Master's programme in Classics and Ancient Civilizations sees students as partners in research, among others giving them the chance to participate in the research of staff members. It offers a well-defined opportunity to specialise in either Classics or Ancient Studies. At the same time, the programme provides training in interdisciplinary thinking for which there is an increasing demand on the job market.
