Greek and Latin Languages and Culture

Teaching in Classics is organised within the following degree programmes:

Bachelor (BA) Griekse en Latijnse Taal en Cultuur. This (Dutch-language) programme offers language acquisition as well as training in all aspects of ancient languages, literature and culture.

Master (MA) Classics and Ancient Civilizations. In the course of this one-year programme (in English) students complete their academic education through one of two tracks: Classics and Ancient History.

Educational Master (MA) Classics and Ancient Civilizations. In this two-year MA track (in Dutch and English) students train to be a high school Classics teacher. The programme of the first year consists of Classics courses, combined with a secondary school internship in the second semester. In the second year the focus is on educational theory and classroom practice.

Research Master (ReMA) Classical, Medieval and Early Modern Studies (CMEMS). This two-year, multidisciplinary and research-oriented programme (in English) offers students the space and specialised supervision to develop their research skills.

Minors for students from other degree programmes

We offer a minor Classics and Ancient History, which offers the possibility of specializing in language, archaeology, or history. We also offer the minor Mirror of Myth, and contribute to the minor Rhetorics. In addition, it is often possible to take part in individual courses, one of these being Classics: A problematic heritage. Students wishing to learning the languages from scratch are advised to take a look at Greek of Latin for Beginners. For MA students, there is Greek or Latin for Research, which combines the aforementioned course with a research assignment.
