Overview

This programme trains you as an expert in philology, ancient literatures, ancient history and archaeology. Depending on the curriculum you choose, you acquire specialised skills and methods in archaeology, ancient art and material culture history, languages and literatures of ancient Greek and Latin civilisations or ancient history (including Greek, Roman and ancient East history).

This programme offers two curricula, or study paths, from which to choose. Explore this programme’s study plans (Study > Study plan > Enrolled in the 2023/2024 academic year):

  • Ancient Philology, Literatures and History
  • Archaeology

Your academic activities benefit from state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies (e.g., digital humanities), allowing you to access texts and archives online and to use specifically designed analytical software.

You can further explore your field of interest through excavation experiences, internships in epigraphy, digital humanities workshops and museum internships. Upon graduation, you will be able to assume a position of responsibility in institutions such as museums, local administration, archives, publishing houses, or obtain teaching qualifications for middle and secondary schools.
