Programma

  • 1 jaar

    All students in this track follow a commentary course, an interdisciplinary course, and a thematic course, and write a thesis on a subject related to Greek or Latin literature. In addition, they can choose from several other courses to create their own programme.

    • Commentary course: students are trained in the critical use of commentaries on Greek and Latin texts and learn how to write such a commentary themselves. (2018-19: Didactic poetry.)
    • Interdisciplinary course: students study a subject on the interface between classical languages and ancient history / archaeology. (2018-19: Landscape and Memory.)
    • Thematic course: students study a specific theme in classical texts. (2018-19: Fate and Fortune in Classical Literature.)

    In addition, students can partake in the Research Seminar of the Ancient History-track, or choose one of the 11 interdisciplinary seminars offered by the Faculty (an example complementary to this Classics-track is From Writer to Reader: Editions). It is also possible to do a course on Greek epigraphy (5 EC, or 10 EC within the Masterlanguage programme), or do a work placement.

Elke masteropleiding heeft een studieadviseur waar je terecht kunt als je vragen hebt of advies wilt over je studie en andere zaken rondom het studeren. Alles wat je bespreekt wordt vertrouwelijk behandeld. Bij complexe zaken verwijst de studieadviseur je door naar een studentendecaan.

  • Testimonial van Juul van der Harst

    You learn on your own to analyse critically, research literature properly and set up your own research.

    Why this master?
    As someone who loves the classics I have been very happy doing the bachelor Greek and Latin Language and Culture. I continued my education in Groningen because I liked the ambiance at the university and the focus on the cultural aspect as well as the languages. I wanted to become a teacher, but at the same time I wanted to enrich my academic view on Antiquity. Therefore I decided to do the Education Master which consists of 60 ECTS Classical Studies and 60 ECTS didactics, to get the best of both worlds.

    Freedom and independence
    A nice thing about this master is the large extent of freedom you’ll get. A small number of courses is obligatory, but besides those you can choose courses from other studies like Archaeology, Philosophy or Ancient History. There are also possibilities outside the RUG: take for example the Master Language programme, in which I took the Greek Epigraphy course.

    Most of these courses are research courses and this means you can largely decide your own topic and research area. This will enhance your motivation and your ability to find out where your strong points and preferences lie – something which education is all about, I think. I have noticed that I’m interested in religion and poetry, and I’ve really enjoyed developing this further during the classes/

    During this master you’ll have very few classes: I have to go to class 6 hours a week on average. Most of the work has to be done by yourself and therefore requires a lot of independence and planning. Besides, as wonderful as they are, the classical languages are a lot of work and at times rather difficult. But teachers will always be willing to help you and due to the small scale there is a lot of contact between students. It also means you learn on your own to analyse critically, research literature properly and set up your own research. So if you take all these things into consideration, you will be alright and you will be in possession of a diploma that shows you have a lot of extensive knowledge and an ability to work hard!
