Oude Geschiedenis

What are the classical roots of modern politics? How did religious landscapes interact with political networks? What made the Roman Empire so successful? Why was sport so important to the Greeks?

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 -in English- with a full-time and a part-time tangent. While we cover the whole of antiquity, from archaic Greece to the late Roman Empire, our focus lies on the political, cultural, and religious connectivities of the Mediterranean world. Ancient History in Groningen is interdisciplinary in character and interacts with religious studies, material culture studies, but also with other historical periods. In Groningen you will become familiar with various theoretical approaches and methodologies, and digital humanities plays a strong role in our teaching and research. 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
