opbouw
For an overview of the subjects offered by this programme in the current year, check out the e-Prospectus: https://studiegids.universiteitleiden.nl/studies/7705/classics-and-ancient-civilizations-research-classics. The subjects can vary from year to year.
The Research MA Classics and Ancient Civilizations covers two years and can be studied in four tracks: Classics is one of them. While diving into the literary, cultural and intellectual worlds of Greece and Rome, you will be involved in current research, and stimulated to reflect on the significance of Classics to the 21st century.

The Research Master Classics shares two Common Courses with Assyriology, Egyptology and Hebrew and Aramaic Studies (the other Classics and Ancient Civilizations specializations). These courses are geared towards connecting the various disciplines and cross-fertilizing work in your own specialization. Students are invited to examine cultural phenomena that transcend their own discipline and engage in discussions with fellows from neighbouring fields. Since classes in the Research Master level always follow recent trends in research, specific topics presented in the Common Courses may change every year.

1e jaar All Classics and Ancient Civilisations specialisations share two compulsory core courses which are geared towards connecting the various disciplines involved.

Nicolò Bettegazzi - Student Testimonial Classics Leiden University

Outstanding Classicists
What first attracted me about Leiden University was its international renown as a cutting-edge hub gathering outstanding classicists from all over Europe. After having completed a bachelor's in Classics in Italy, Leiden seemed to me the best place to combine my theoretical background with a strong emphasis on innovative and multi-disciplinary approaches to the Ancient World...
As a Research Master's student, I can say that the master's in Classics provides you with all the tools you need to pursue an academic career, whether in the Netherlands or abroad, thanks to the expertise offered by Leiden professors and to the rich network of projects in which the department is involved.

Annemijn Geelen - Student Testimonial Classics Leiden University

An attractive programmeMy interest in Greek tragedy and focus on Greek linguistics made me choose the Classics master's at Leiden University. The members of staff have extensive knowledge and there are plenty of visiting scholars who give lectures or stay for a longer period doing research and giving classes. The international orientation and open attitude of both teachers and students make this programme very attractive..

Motivation
I think the presence of many hardworking scholars at the university, who are internationally known and rewarded, is motivating...
The most important thing that I learnt at Leiden University for this position is being professional and knowing how to present myself.
