Was Caesar the first populist? Can Harry Potter be regarded as a mythological hero? In the Bachelor’s programme Ancient Studies, you will gain insight into the ancient origins of political systems and themes such as identity and migration, which remain relevant far beyond the time of the Persians, Athenians and Romans. Your expertise in the field of Ancient Studies will thus also allow you to develop a critical outlook on contemporary events.

Ancient Studies is a varied and many-faceted programme, from participating in excavations to deciphering manuscripts. History, archaeology and Classical languages converge within this programme. This innovative combination of disciplines gives you a unique overall perspective on Antiquity and its impact throughout the ages, as well as teaching you to reason from various types of sources and theories. Furthermore, you will specialise in one of the following subjects: ancient history, Greek or Latin, archaeology, or Ancient Near Eastern Studies. As such, you will unite a broad, critical perspective with depth and expertise. The programme investigates the Classical cultures that lie at the roots of our modern world.
