Classical Studies (M.A.)
|Field of Study:
||Classical, Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies and Archaeology
||The Department of Classical and Religious Studies, located in the Faculty of Art, offers a master’s program leading to the degree of Master of Arts in Classical Studies. The program comprises one main field: Late Antiquity (A.D. 200-700). The objective of this program is to prepare the students for further study in the field of late antiquity, the important transitional period between classical antiquity and the Middle Ages. The Department also offers the possibility of studying Coptic, Syriac, Arabic and Ethiopic (in addition to Latin and Greek). Candidates will acquire a thorough background that will enable them to pursue doctoral studies.
The program aims to refine critical and scholarly skills and to broaden the knowledge of its graduates in certain areas. The ability to conduct detailed research, to argue coherently, to write an academic paper, and other skills learned can be applied in careers outside academia. Several graduates find positions in local or federal government, where their training at the M.A. level is clearly valued.
