Are you interested in the history, literature and culture of classical, medieval and early modern civilizations? Do you aspire to a career in research? This track is just what you are looking for.
This two-year Research Master's track focuses on Classical Antiquity, the Middle Ages and Early Modernity in Europe and the Middle East. The programme gives you the opportunity to explore the similarities and differences between these periods and to gain fundamental insights into the cultural developments and changes of premodern times. You will receive a thorough training in today's relevant research tools for studying the premodern world, including digital humanities.
Classical, Medieval and Early Modern Studies offers a multidisciplinary and international environment. Depending on your background and research interests, you can choose one main focus (History, Literature or Classics) within our interdisciplinary programme.
You can design your own research profile to fit your interests. The programme provides specialist, tailor-made tutorials and courses on theory and method. You will collaborate with our top researchers on their academic projects. You can also spend a study period abroad at one of our partner universities. To complete your studies you will write an MA thesis on a subject of your own choice and specialism under the guidance of our academic team, which will give you a firm basis for further studies at PhD level.
