About Classics at University of Groningen

This track offers education in a wide range of skills to the aspiring classicist: from in-depth analysis of all aspects of a Greek or Latin text to interdisciplinary and thematic studies of important facets of Classical Antiquity.

There are three different programmes for those interested in Classics; the courses presented on this page are common to all three programmes:

  • the one-year general MA-track, covered on this page
  • the two-year Research Master CMEMS, with the option to specialize in Classics, for students wishing to pursue an academic career
  • the two-year Educational Master, for students wishing to become a teacher in Classics; this MA combines the programme covered here with the one-year Teacher Education programme. This Dutch programme is only open to students with sufficient Dutch language skills (NT2, programme II).

In the one-year Master's track, students acquire the knowledge and skills required of a professional classicist. The programme in Groningen is known for its integration of classical languages and ancient cultural history. Students learn how to apply modern scholarly theories to ancient literary and material sources; they also hone their skills in the fields of philology, textual criticism and intertextuality by writing an academic commentary on a classical text. This master's track offers flexibility in choosing between a more linguistic or a more cultural-historical approach; it is also possible to study epigraphy at another faculty within the Masterlanguage programme, or to include a work placement in the programme.

Our alumni are skilled writers and have eye for detail but also for the bigger picture, which makes them sought-after employees in many fields, including (but not limited to) education, publishing, the cultural sector, journalism and the government.
