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

  • Bachelor’s degree in a program with at least 60 credit points in Greek or Latin studies with proof of Latin and Greek language skills, or an equivalent degree with equivalent training.

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.

Students in this research-oriented master’s program will broaden and expand knowledge acquired in a bachelor’s program in classics as well as methodological and analytical competencies oriented toward current research questions. Links to the other humanities are made possible by teaching methods that allow for interdisciplinary work.
