About Ancient History at University of Groningen

What are the classical roots of modern ideas about politics? How did the religious landscape interact with its political environment? What made the Roman Empire so successful? Why was sport so important? What was the context of the rise of Christianity? These are some of many questions that you can study in Groningen.

Ancient history is a dynamic discipline with a long tradition! In Groningen, Ancient History takes the form of a one-year Master's track with a full-time and a part-time variant. Ancient History in Groningen covers the whole of antiquity, from archaic Greece to the late Roman Empire. We have a particular focus on the political cultural and religious connectivities of the Mediterranean world. We take an interdisciplinary approach especially with archaeology and religious studies. We integrate theoretical approaches and digital humanities in our teaching. In addition to elite culture, we are also interested in aspects of daily life – besides literary sources, we focus on inscriptions, papyri and archaeological sources as cultural objects that cast a radically different light on the ancient world.
