For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in ancient history with a focus on classical archaeology or an equivalent university degree that corresponds in terms of content and structure to the program at Freie Universität Berlin.
  • Proof of language skills in Latin and ancient Greek (Latinum or Graecum or equivalent level).
  • Proof of skills in a modern foreign language: English, French, or Italian (level B2 CEFR).

The DSH - or German Language University Entrance Exam for Foreign Students - is obligatory for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

Classical archaeology deals with the sites, artwork, and objects from the Greek and Roman cultures (about 1500 BC to 500 AD). This master’s program teaches comprehensive expert knowledge, visual and media competence, the ability to reconstruct, academic working methods, and methodological and analytical skills. This program offers students the oppotunity to select special foci and acquire communicative competencies and foreign language skills while spending time abroad.
