What will I learn?

The MA course in Classical Philology / Greek Philology provides an overview of the history and tradition of Greek literature of the archaic, classical, and hellenistic period as well as the period of imperial rule, under consideration of its continuing influence on Latin literature from Antiquity to the early modern period. Students hone their receptive and productive language skills, which will enable them to study Greek texts of different eras independently. For example, students will learn how to apply rhetoric as a text theory to their interpretations, to practice rhetoric as a method of literary studies, to compare it with other methods of literary studies, and to use it interdisciplinary as a method of Ancient Studies.

Which career opportunities do I have?

Academic research and teaching at universities or non-university research centres; Digital Humanities projects; adult education and advanced education in the field of culture studies; museum work; publishing and library work; academic and literary translation; PR in the field of education and exhibitions, courses, excursions, tours and lectures; science journalism in the field of Classical Philology as well as cultures having a part in the reception of antiquity.

    Due to the current situation personal contact with the Psychological Counseling Center is not possible at the moment. We are however available by e-mail, telephone, chat or video chat. Unfortunately, our normal range of workshops cannot take place in the usual way. We would however like to offer the following webinars as an alternative.
    We are gradually learning how to adapt to the Corona outbreak, both in our everyday lives as well as at the university. For us, this means changing to online teaching for the duration of the current semester. Courses and exams held in lecture halls and seminar rooms will not be possible, with exception to some special exams. Regulations for this are currently being drawn up; exceptions are also to be made for selected laboratory exercises and practical sports courses.
    Information of 23rd April 2020: The Minister of Science’s new ruling on special regulations for study law at universities has now been announced, which gives us the opportunity to regulate some important matters. Please note that these regulations have been set for a limited time period (i.e. for this semester, but sometimes even beyond this).
