The Masters curriculum

With a Master of Ancient History you set your study focus on one era, the ancient world. Within this era two cultural groups stand out above all, and you can regard them as the core issues of this particular Masters degree. You discuss the ancient Romans and Greeks, examine their intercultural links as well as their ties to neighbouring civilisations.

Besides this study focus, your study content is also conceptualised in an interdisciplinary manner. Historical and social science topics accompany your study, which enables you to choose from a variety of courses. Exemplary courses are archaeology, history of the fine arts, classical philology or papyrology.

From a methodological perspective, your Master of Ancient History teaches you the art of historical analysis or interpretation and the use of novel sources.

Admission & Application

There are a variety of universities offering Masters programmes in Ancient History as a specialisation of an overall history degree. The one common admission criterion among institutions is an undergraduate degree in history or an equivalent programme in the humanities. In addition, basic language proficiency in Latin and Greek are required at most universities. Nevertheless, we advise you to contact the university directly to double-check once you have chosen a place where you want to study.
