Classics and Ancient Civilizations at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Do you want to become an expert in the literature and linguistics of classical languages or in the cultures and religions of Ancient Greece, Rome or the Near East? Then the Master's in Classics and Ancient Civilizations – with its two distinct specialisations – may be the programme for you.

 

Gain an in-depth understanding of ancient cultures

 

This Master’s is offered jointly by the University of Amsterdam and VU Amsterdam – combining their expertise in Archaeology, Ancient History and Classics in the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA). This merging of specialisations encourages collaboration and extends the options for the supervision of your Master’s thesis. Not only is the teaching strongly related to the research expertise of the staff, but you’ll also be a partner in research during your studies.

Classics and Ancient Civilizations

The one-year Classics and Ancient Civilizations Master's programme allows you to explore the theoretical frameworks and methodologies currently used in Classics or Ancient Studies.

 

Explore ancient languages, cultures and histories

During the programme, you’ll gain a thorough knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages or of themes in the field of Ancient History and Ancient Studies, such as Religion, Gender and Urban History. You’ll receive excellent training in classical linguistics, intertextuality and narratology, and post-classical Greek and Latin. And you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the social, cultural and religious history of Ancient Greece, Rome and the Near East. 

 

Teaching takes place in small group classes with plenty of direct personal contact between you and your tutors. Plus, you’re able to follow and develop your own personal interests by tapping into the wide range of expertise held by the professors at the UvA and VU Amsterdam.

Facts and figures

 

The Study Programme

 

In the first semester, you’ll take two compulsory interdisciplinary courses. If you decide to specialise in Classics, you’ll follow an additional course on the methodology of textual analysis and another course on Greek and Latin linguistics. If you choose to specialise in Ancient Studies, you’ll delve into the specifics of urban life in the ancient world, and the religious developments of Late Antiquity. Assyriologists take two courses on Ancient Near Eastern language and culture (Akkadian). In the final period of the semester, you’ll work on a term paper, which can be related to either the interdisciplinary classes or  a topic of your own choice.
In the second semester, you’ll take two more courses in the field of your specialisation. And finally, you’ll write your Master’s thesis on your own area of research.
