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.
