Undergraduate course “Culture of Antiquity” (BA)

The undergraduate course “Culture of Antiquity” which replaced the Magister courses in Ancient History, Classical Archaeology, Latin and Greek Philology as of WS 2005/2006, offers an interdisciplinary approach to antiquity.

The ancient culture is presented in a form in which its different dimensions such as history, literature, and art come into their own.

To ensure the acquisition of appropriate technical knowledge as well as a suitable interdisciplinarity, the programme consists of two phases:

  • In the first two semesters, all students complete four basic and two language modules, in which the content and methodology of the participating classical studies are imparted.

  • Only then one of the four disciplines is chosen as a core subject. From the 3rd to the 6th semester, the majority of courses is taken, and the bachelor thesis is written in this core subject.

A central role is played by the four core modules whose thematically organised cycle offers an overview of the content and issues of the chosen subject.

The “Baccalaureus Artium” obtained after six semesters already represents a professional qualification, but it may also be supplemented by an M.A. course (e.g. in the chosen core subject).

Different language requirements apply to the different core subjects, but they can still be acquired during the first year of study. The more knowledge a student already has in the two ancient languages, the more freedom he/she has in choosing the language- or elective modules.

Due to the modular structure of the courses, the beginning of the studies is only possible in a winter semester.
