Oude Geschiedenis

What are the classical roots of modern ideas about politics? How did religious landscapes interact with political networks? What made the Roman Empire so successful? Why was sport so important? What was the context of the rise of Christianity?

These are some of many questions that you can study in Groningen. In Groningen, we offer Ancient History as a one-year Master's track with a full-time and a part-time tangent. While we cover the whole of antiquity, from archaic Greece to the late Roman Empire, we especially focus on the political, cultural, and religious connectivities of the Mediterranean world. We take an interdisciplinary approach especially with archaeology and religious studies, but also other historical periods. In Groningen you will work with various theoretical approaches as well as digital humanities. Our topics range from elite culture to daily life using a wide variety of data – besides literary sources, you will explore ways that inscriptions, papyri and material culture cast a radically different light on the ancient world.

Ancient History is a track within the Master's degree programme in Classics and Ancient Civilizations. Within this track, we offer three specializations:

  • Ancient History and Culture
  • Ancient History and Religious Studies
  • Ancient History and Premodern History
