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

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

Upon graduation students hold a (60 ECTS) MA degree in Classics and Ancient Civilizations with a track in Ancient History from the UG. A student's career after that depends on the kind of person they are. However all graduates possess a broad knowledge of the history of the Greek and Roman World on the basis of different types of sources.

They have, moreover, critical thinking skills and are experts in analyzing problems from the perspective of different cultures and periods. Having a multiperspectival view is an asset in the contemporary world.

A degree in Classics and Ancient Civilizations (Ancient History) can therefore be the starting point of different types of jobs. Many of the skills an Ancient History MA teaches are transferable. You will probably find that your analytical competence, ability to write, and capacity to solve problems will significantly improve after completing an MA degree.

We encourage our students to complete a 10 EC internship in a field of their interest.

With your MA-degree you could become a policy consultant, or work as editor, journalist or in a museum. You may also choose to pursue a career as lecturer or researcher in higher education.

Our programme prepares students for, for instance, the following jobs:
